The Nation

February 25, 1988

A crisis over an unconstitutional West Virginia budget was eased when state officials agreed to continue government as usual until they hear more from the state Supreme Court. The high court had issued a 3-2 opinion calling the budget unconstitutional because it contains a $26-million deficit. But the court granted a 60-day grace period during which the ruling would be suspended while a rehearing is requested. Initially, Treasurer A. James Manchin said he would not process any more state bills.
