With election looming, Gov. Justice crosses state, handing out grants

Over the past week, with Election Day looming, Gov. Jim Justice has criss-crossed West Virginia, handing out a total of $20.015 million in grants funded by the federal government — or mostly, identifying projects the state has recommended for federal funding.

“It’s a great day in West Virginia. I get to give away money,” Justice said during a grants presentation in Beckley. “It couldn’t be better.”

He added, “I’ve had the opportunity to do this several different times in several different places across the state.”

The announcements, which Justice has said will continue, has consisted of Transportation Alternatives and Recreational Trails Program grants, funded through the federal Highways Administration, as well as projects recommended by the state for funding for economic development grants through the federal Office of Surface Mining and Enforcement.
