A little good news

WV Governor Earl Ray Tomblin announced tonight that he signed House Bill 4283, which will raise the minimum wage for over 120,000 hard-working West Virginians.

Many of those who supported this increase were concerned about a possible veto due to technical concerns about how the bill might impact local governments. Tomblin, however, along with Senate President Kessler and House Speaker Miley, promised to deal with any problems in a special legislative session in May.

What a relief. I've been on edge for over a week. This is a huge win for working families. Thanks to all who supported this!
