Announcement Coming Today on Public Hearings for Highway Funds

Dates and times should be announced today for public hearings on how to fund state highways. The governor's Blue Ribbon Commission on Highways had hoped to start the public meetings last month, but that was delayed, partially because the proper paperwork together to pass out at meetings wasn't ready yet. Hearings will happen in eight cities including Martinsburg, Beckley, Huntington and Logan, and there will be a public comment period during the Blue Ribbon commission's next meeting in Charleston, set for June 26. The deadline for making recommendations to the governor is August 1.
