West Virginia MetroNews – With a federal deadline approaching Dec. 30, state records show West Virginia still has $819,769,216 of its $1.25 billion. Read the full article.
Gov. Jim Justice has allocated the money, much of it to cover unemployment claims, but the bulk still appears banked rather than spent.
Justice on Friday made reference to watching invoices and monitoring expenses, so it’s likely the bills are still in process for some of West Virginia’s spending. West Virginia would need to spend $34 million a day over the next 24 days to come in on deadline.
