Charleston, W.Va. (AP) -- West Virginia's legislature has finished its latest special session after voting to increase state spending by $39.1 million.
The House of Delegates on Wednesday approved all six supplemental appropriation bills proposed by Gov. Joe Manchin and unanimously passed by the senate on Monday.
The new spending includes $15 million for roads and bridges, $7.4 million for higher education and $3.8 million for flood relief.
At least $7 million will restore cuts to the new budget that takes effect July 1, but only as one-time funding.
Measures also reassigned $6.1 million already in the budget.
Those allow state debt payments, improvements at community and technical colleges and federal matching funds for the division of rehabilitation services.
