No more delays for Corridor H

January 30, 2013

Tourism already is a major contributor to West Virginia’s economy, but it could become much, much more important if a better highway route existed to bring East Coast residents to our majestic......

i painstakingly read all these comments and i knew if i kept reading i would hear that the democrates are to blame. why anyone would want to come here for any reason besides to build anew house in remote areas to enjoy the beauty of our state is beyond me. there isnt much here. out of staters dont come to sell dr gs,they come here to buy them. from locals.

Democrats in this democrat-controlled state for decades refuse to discuss or do any tort reform. Until that happens, WV will NEVER get good paying jobs into this state. NO business is even interested in considering this state of tax and spend democrats!

Outsiders coming in here is what is going to cause exorbitant fees, taxes, and crime. I, for one will be happy that there is not money to finish this corrider. Folks love WV for its country-settings, it's low crime rate and friendly citizens. No more! Corrider H will change ALL these things drastically. Watch these fools complain then, because they will when they see their taxes quadruple. WV doesn't want to be like Virginia where one pays outrageous taxes to support all the crime that big 'city' and higher populations bring on a community! You don't get to 'choose' the type of folks that come in and we WILL and ARE right now seeing crime raise drastically already in the state. And MOST are not citizens of WV that are doing it.

Pure, you do realize your comment is xenophobic and actually a part of why business will not locate in WV right? Why would someone wish to go where they are not wanted by the populous?

I find it interesting that you feel you are the only knowledgeable individual on city socioeconomic factors. Considering you have obvious issues with 'city-slickers,' I would not likely trust your judgment as being unbiased or objective on the subject.

Tort reform is not the main issue IMO. ACTUAL franchise and equipment tax rates assessed by the state are more likely to drive business away opposed to a THREAT of potential lawsuits. If not, why have they been phased to come down over a period of years ending in 2015? I bet business lobbied for these reductions opposed to the 'legislative lawyers' coming up with that plan on their own.

Complain when little Johnny has to leave home for another state to find work and then complain when Johnny comes home and buys a farm with his out of state pay. Y'all do understand that 'progress' generally = economic growth right? If you want the next generation of Johnny's to stay in WV, you should thank an out-of-stater for providing him with a construction job building those multi-million dollar homes at the resort areas. I know it drives the price of land and homes up, but usually this is concentrated in certain areas.

As to drugs in the area, most of the names I see in the paper getting busted, I recognize as being local-yocols. Perhaps some out-of-state cash flow would help them be productive instead of destructive.

I used to be against the H, now it is so close to being finished, just do so. One ironic twist though, is the praise for Manchin looking at cutting the Fed deficit, while the other side of our mouth asks to continue to feed at the trough.
