Nine senators are sponsoring SB 324 (“Brains for Business”), which calls for a $500 tax credit for interest paid on student loans and a state tax exemption on the first $25,000 of income for West Virginians the first two years after their graduation from an institution of higher education. We thank Senators McCabe, Browning, Kessler, D. Facemire, Wells, Barnes, Jenkins, Chafin, White, Stollings, Plymale, Prezioso, Palumbo and Oliverio for their early support and urge others to get behind this measure to help attract and retain the next generation of business leaders in the Mountain State.
