CHARLESTON, W.Va.


The West Virginia Senate Military Committee has endorsed a bill to allow construction of a 120-bed veterans nursing Home in Raleigh County.

The bill allows the agriculture commissioner to transfer 17 acres next to the Jackie Withrow Hospital in Beckley to the secretary of Veterans' Assistance for the new facility.

Bill sponsor Sen. Mike Green says the only existing nursing facility for veterans in the state is located in Clarksburg and has a waiting list.

Funds for construction of the nursing facility would come from the Veterans Lottery Fund, Veterans Nursing Homes Building Fund, and the Veterans Nursing Home Debt Service Fund.

The bill has been passed to the Senate Finance Committee.
