Personally I favor tearing down a few of the building rather than building more and firing those without space to work in. Seems goverment never gets better, only bigger and worse.

The story is tur for blow hard responses about cutting jobs and not spending any money on gov workers but pretty sure not many have ever gone to Charleston to get something from state government and saw what the current office complex looks like. First you have to try to find a parking place to do business with your gov because the lots built decades ago are not big enough for today. The offices are cramped and way to small to house the work that is done there. Yeah I know you don't have an office so why should anyone else but the fact is they do public work. Big talk sounds good in a bar and at McDonald's morning think tank meeting but not in reality. Add to that battling the EPA and regulating the new energy business so starting a30 yr project makes sense. The US just became the largest energy producer in the world and WV has a good piece of that. WV gov is not all about welfare, energy growth is about jobs, corporate taxes, etc. Build it!

Yes, been to Capital complex several times, never had a problem parking and never had to meet with someone in a closet.

Why is it that in a state the size of Texas the legislature only meets every other year (unless a special meeting is called by the governor (and only the governor) and in WV our's meets every year and can't finish without special sessions? Yea, our delegates need less space, not more.
