The WV Legislature also needs to put some teeth in their ethics laws. Currently there are no real penalties for ethics violations, and thus they are rampant, which leads to bigger, larger, more improper activities by local and state politicians. The Northern Panhandle is one of the worst examples of a culture with a complete lack of ethics, and needs real penalties to ensure these laws aren't ignored. Public money is being spent entirely in secret under business development corporation nonprofits across the state unless they operate differently than the N.

Hopefully this push by WV Legislatures is genuine, because the "Open for Business" motto is far from accurate in today's business climate in WV!
