This website is devoutly dedicated to all of Larry's friends and associates, both early and late, who have influenced and mentored him. However, it also should be noted that, being who they are, a majority of them have been late most of the time.

Crunching the Numbers

A Memo Sent to the West Virginia Legislative Leadership:

SB 564, creation of a Legislative Fiscal and Policy Division, is a welcome breath of fresh air for independent and accurate fiscal and policy analysis of legislative proposals.

My previous years of experience and service with Legislatures in Indiana, Maryland, and Pennsylvania has firmly persuaded me that Legislatures simply cannot truly function as coequal and effective branches of government without the ability to independently and accurately analyze the probable impact of proposed legislation in a non-partisan, accurate, and transparent basis.

I enthusiastically support SB 564.

Delegate Larry D. Kump
