Lawmakers Get Turnpike Update

The Associated Press reports that "while cost-cutting and downsizing have freed up money, the agency that runs the West Virginia Turnpike still has barely more than one-third of what it needs for road improvements."

The audit presented to legislators during their interim meetings also found that the agency "has streamlined costs by eliminating perks such as free health insurance and annual 'recognition award' bonuses for its employees," The Charleston Gazette reports.

The Register-Herald of Beckley also details the report's findings.
