That legislation did not provide for the three West Virginia Eastern Panhandle Counties to join Virginia. That never was the real issue or point of the legislation.
If passed, it would have provided a non-binding referendum for the residents of those three counties on the issue, solely as a means for further discussion on and education about the woeful political mismanagement of West Virginia's economy and the need for West Virginia to make much needed reforms.
Although the legislation received media attention, it never received a hearing in legislative committee.

Subject: Bill Passage
I was wondering the status of the bill introduced for three West Virginia counties to join Virginia.
I read about this in the Daily Press and became very interested.
