Be a Part of the Attorney General's Jobs Summit & Town Hall Meetings
Action is urgently needed to improve West Virginia's business climate, and the Office of the Attorney General can and should play a positive role in this process. The Attorney General has the authority - through both legal opinions and legal actions - to significantly improve West Virginia's business and regulatory climate. It is the goal of Attorney General Patrick Morrisey to help West Virginia reach its economic potential.
During the next several months, the Office of the Attorney General will travel the state to talk with citizens, business groups, labor organizations and others to hear first-hand from them about what they would like to see changed.
The Office of the West Virginia Attorney General will travel throughout the state this spring, summer and early fall conducting a Jobs Summit and town hall meetings. The goal is to:
- Identify regulatory barriers that impede job growth in the state.
- Increase private sector employment in the state.
- Attract new capital and investments to the state in order to foster vibrant manufacturing, service and construction sectors, to name just a few.
- Enhance West Virginia's competitiveness when compared to surrounding states.
- Improve West Virginia's image to people and businesses located outside the state.
