Poor rural counties wait with baited breath for some money to fund projects or keep things afloat. This is Budget Digest day at the West Virginia Legislature, with the $24 million dollar give-a-way to be voted upon.

The Digest has been called the greatest pork event ever created for incumbent politicians, and indeed it may be.

In some counties the need for extra bucks is desperate, and deeply appreciated.

It is expected the list of approved projects will be made available by Del. Bill Stemple and Sen. Donna Boley.

The money, in more recent years, has been distributed on the population of the county, but there are exceptions. Some senators or delegates manage to funnel extra cash to projects in their area.

Sen. Oshel Craigo said the funding will remain much the same this year with traditional projects.
