Justice Touts Highways Construction Plan In Statewide Tour

February 20th, 2017 by WCBC Radio

Gov. Jim Justice touted his highways construction program that would be financed by higher taxes and fees as he launched a statewide tour to promote the plan that he says would create tens of thousands of jobs in West Virginia. Justice told a crowd in Slab Fork that the tax increases would not be permanent and would only serve as a stop-gap measure, the Charleston Gazette-Mail reported.

"I know it's going to hurt a little bit in the beginning, but it's going to be so good that you won't believe it," Justice told more than 200 people who attended the launch of his statewide tour on Sunday.

Justice said that without the increases, the state will continue to suffer economically.
