CHAPTER 12. PUBLIC MONEYS AND SECURITIES.

§12-7-12. Reports of board; report of housing development fund.

NOTE: West Virginia Code §12-7-12 was amended by two bills passed during the 2022 Regular Session of the Legislature. When two acts of the Legislature amend the same section of the Code without express recognition in the bill of the action of the other bill, the Legislative Manager makes no determination as to the appropriate, legal effect of the two acts. Therefore, BOTH versions of this section are set out below.
The latter act, Senate Bill 523 (passed on March 7, 2022), amended West Virginia Code §12-7-12 to read as follows:

(a) The board shall prepare annually, or more frequently if deemed necessary by the board, a report of its operations and the performance of the various investments administered by it. A copy thereof shall be furnished to the Governor, the President of the Senate, the Speaker of the House of Delegates, the Legislative Auditor, and, upon request, to any legislative committee. Such report shall be kept available for inspection by any citizen of this state. The report required in this subsection may be made available electronically on the board’s website or through the website of the West Virginia Economic Development Authority. The report may be submitted to the Governor, the President of the Senate, the Speaker of the House of Delegates, the Legislative Auditor, or to any legislative committee electronically and paper copies must be provided upon request.

(b) The West Virginia Economic Development Authority shall prepare annually and submit to the President of the Senate, the Speaker of the House of Delegates, the Legislative Auditor, and, upon request, any legislative committee, a report on the performance of the board and the quality of its investments for the preceding year. The report required in this subsection may be made available electronically on the West Virginia Economic Development Authority’s website. The report may be submitted to the Governor, the President of the Senate, the Speaker of the House of Delegates, the Legislative Auditor, or to any legislative committee electronically and paper copies must be provided upon request.

The earlier act, House Bill 4067 (passed on February 10, 2022) amended West Virginia Code §12-7-12 to read as follows:

(a) The board shall prepare annually, or more frequently if deemed necessary by the board, a report of its operations and the performance of the various investments administered by it. A copy thereof shall be furnished to the Governor, the President of the Senate, the Speaker of the House of Delegates, the Legislative Auditor and, upon request, to any legislative committee. Such report shall be kept available for inspection by any citizen of this state.

(b) The West Virginia housing development fund shall prepare annually and submit to the President of the Senate, the Speaker of the House of Delegates, the Legislative Auditor and, upon request, any legislative committee, a report on the performance of the board and the quality of its investments for the preceding year.

(c) The report shall be transmitted to the President of the Senate, the Speaker of the House of Delegates, the Legislative Auditor and, upon request, any legislative committee electronically. Further, the report shall be provided to the legislative librarian to be posted to the legislative website. No hard copy of the report shall be issued; however, upon request a hard copy shall be provided.
