West Virginia's Attorney General Holds Town Hall Meeting in Parkersburg

By  | 

Up close with West Virginia's Attorney General.

That was the goal of a town hall meeting Wednesday night in Parkersburg.

State Attorney General Patrick Morrisey talked about working through regulations to make the state more business-friendly, especially for small businesses.

Earlier in the day he met with local business leaders and the health care community.

One of the medical profession's biggest concerns is uncertainty about Obamacare.

"When you're talking about when Medicaid is being expanded, people don't have a firm grasp on how it will be handled or rolled out," he says. "So the most important thing is to provide people with certainty that is important for health care, as well as to expand business opportunity in the state of West Virginia."

Morrisey has held 20 similar public meetings in the Mountain State.

He's been in office for just under a year.

Morrisey is the state's first Republican attorney general since the great depression.
