AG Patrick Morrisey Announces Kickoff of Planned Jobs Summit

CHARLESTON, W.VA. -- Attorney General Patrick Morrisey today announced that his Office will kick off its planned "Jobs Summit & Listening Tour". The overarching goal of the Jobs Summit -- which is part of the Attorney General's 17-point plan for the first 100 days in the 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," Attorney General Morrisey said. "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 Attorney General's Jobs Summit will be a series of listening tour stops across the state, allowing West Virginians to provide the Office with 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.


"I will take any necessary action to help move our economy forward, a West Virginians cannot afford for our state to fall further behind" Morrisey explained. "The Attorney General possesses the legal power -- through both legal opinions and legal actions -- to significantly improve West Virginia's business and regulatory climate."


Statement of West Virginia Republican Party Chairman Conrad Lucas, on today's kick off to the Attorney General's planned "Jobs Summit & Listening Tour".


"Today, we are proud of our Attorney General Patrick Morrisey who is not only keeping a campaign pledge as promised, furthermore, he is actively working to improve West Virginia's business climate by listening to the hardworking citizens who voted him into office. The West Virginia Republican Party supports Attorney General Patrick Morrisey because he plans to improve our regulatory environment so we can read about West Virginia being 'open' for business in the news rather than 'closed.' It is through this kind of initiative that West Virginia will realize its economic potential."
