Jim Justice in 2024 Governor's State of the State speeches


On Budget & Economy: My administration does not believe in growing government

As far as a budget goes. This for all practical purposes is the six is a six year where we've absolutely had, for all practical purposes, a flat budget. My administration does not believe in growing government. And my administration does not believe in dipping into our rainy day fund and using our rainy day fund. We use surpluses. We use earnings to absolutely make choices to do projects to grow this state but we've got to do it while minding that store that I refer to all the time.

On Government Reform: We cut the red tape; businesses are absolutely booming

Remember the taxes we paid, the regulations that burdened our businesses. We slashed them together. Together all of us, we cut the red tape and what happened? Businesses are absolutely booming and jobs are multiplying. And West Virginia has become a magnet for dreams, not dust.

On Principles & Values: We fought for our faith, our families, our freedoms

But it's not all about dollars and cents is it? When it really boils right down to it, it's about the soul of this state. We protected our coal miners, our gun rights and our unborn babies. I could not be more proud. We fought for our faith, did we not? Our families, our freedoms.

On Tax Reform: The faster we drop taxes on individuals the better we'll be

We've cut taxes in West Virginia 23 times since I walked in the door. Twenty-three different times and delivered on the biggest tax cut, the biggest tax cut in state history, hands down. I would tell you just this, the faster that we can get rid of the taxes on the individuals, the better we'll be. I'm proposing the total elimination of Social Security tax on all, On all.
