West Virginia's volunteer fire departments and rescue squads may soon have a tax break.

The House of Delegates suspended constitutional rules this week, allowing the volunteer organizations to be exempt from paying consumer sales and service fees.

The organizations have been required to pay the taxes on their fund raising activities.

The legislation still needs Senate approval, but the bill is expected to pass. The measure will help Calhoun's three volunteer departments who engage in numerous fund-raising activities.
