Morrisey to kick off jobs summit

Posted: Updated:

West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey will kick off his "Jobs Summit & Listening Tour" at 1:30 p.m. April 17 in the Lower Rotunda of the West Virginia State Capitol.  The goal of the summit, which is part of the Morrisey's 17-point plan for the first 100 days in office, is to meet with interested parties throughout the state to identify the top areas in which the Office of the Attorney General can work to improve West Virginia's economy.

"I am looking forward to hearing from all West Virginians on how the Attorney General's office can help attract jobs back to our state," Morrisey said in a news release.  "Action is urgently needed to improve West Virginia's business climate, and the Office of the Attorney General can and should play an important role in this process."

The kickoff event will be followed by a series of listening tour stops across the state, allowing West Virginians to provide their input and opinions.  After identifying major areas of economic concern for citizens and employers alike, the Office of the Attorney General will begin the process of reviewing state and federal regulations to determine any improvements that can be made, Morrisey said.
