State Lawmakers Weigh Natural Gas Trust Fund

August 27, 2013

Senate President Jeff Kessler hopes the Legislature’s recent trip to North Dakota will build support for his plans to create a natural gas trust fund in West Virginia. Read

West Virginia lawmakers, along with representatives of the state’s business, industry and labor communities, flew to North Dakota last week for a day of meetings with state officials to discuss that state’s Legacy Fund.

Kessler, who organized the trip, said the most important lesson from the trip is, “It’s something that’s tried and true and it works.”
