WV State Judicial System Under Review

image

WV Governor has signed an executive order creating a nine-member panel to “evaluate and recommend reforms” to the state’s judicial system, which has largely been the same for the past 25 years.

The governor said in Friday’s five-page order “the establishment of an independent commission composed of former jurists, attorneys, academics and other professionals to examine the State’s court system may result , as it did in 1974, in the adoption of systemic reforms that will modernize and improve West Virginia’s judiciary.“

Governor says such a task cannot be accomplished unless all three branches of government cooperate. He has ordered the Independent Commission on Judicial Reform to have its work forwarded to him by Nov. 15, 2009. The members of the panel will be appointed by the governor.

The governor’s order says the reforms studies should include “adopting a merit-based system of judicial selection, enacting judicial campaign finance reforms or reporting requirements, creating an intermediate court of appeals, proposing constitutional amendments or establishing a court of chancery.

Governor says members of the commission will not be paid.

$250 Checks Should Be Arriving Soon

image

West Virginians could get nearly $100 million in extra Social Security benefits from the economic stimulus plan, with one-time $250 checks that should start arriving in May.

To receive payments, people must have received Social Security or Supplemental Security Income payments between November 2008 and January 2009.

The Social Security Administration Web site reports that 424,614 West Virginians received Social Security benefits in December 2007, the most recent data available.

About 10% of West Virginia’s Social Security beneficiaries are children, who will not receive checks.

The new law also makes payments to individuals receiving benefits from Veterans Affairs or the Railroad Retirement Board beneficiaries.

People who do not receive their $250 checks by June 4 should contact the Social Security Administration. The Charleston office’s number is 800.772.1213 or 304.347.5217
