Gover Jim Justice announced today that Wednesday, December 05, 2018, will be a state holiday in observance of tomorrow’s National Day of Mourning for President George H.W. Bush.

“President George H.W. Bush was truly a great American military hero,” Gov. Justice said. “I concur with President Trump and his decision to declare December 5th as a National Day of Mourning and I am issuing an executive order to close all state agencies tomorrow in observance of his declaration.”

The Governor’s press conference scheduled for Wednesday, December 05, 2018, at 1:00 p.m. in Bridgeport, WV has been canceled and will be rescheduled.
