CHARLESTON, WV (WOWK) – West Virginia Governor Jim Justice announced the state’s September revenue report during a press conference this morning Thursday, Oct. 1, 2020.
Justice says the Mountain State’s finances are in a great place. For the month of September, the state reports a $10 million surplus putting West Virginia at a $90.4 million surplus for the first quarter of the fiscal year. Right now the state is 12.8% above where it was last year.
The governor says this is due to record sales and income tax collections and CARES Act money.
Coming up this evening on 13 News, our Chief Political Reporter Mark Curtis will have a full report on the numbers and what this means for the Mountain State.
