Charleston, W.Va. - Secretary of State Natalie E. Tennant delivered her budget presentation today before the House Finance Committe at the State Capitol.
Tennant said funding will go toward technology upgrades that will make state government more open and engaging. That includes making it easier for business owners to file their annual reports quickly and easily online, making it more convenient for candidates to file campaign finance reports, and helping people who want to donate to charity find out which charities spent the most on programs in West Virginia.
Tennant also answered questions from delegates ranging from the recent United States Supreme Court ruling on the financing of political advertising to how candidates can file to run for office.
The sixty day regular session ends on March 13 at midnight.
