A West Virginia lawmaker is calling for legislative oversight of West Virginia Supreme Court spending after an Eyewitness News investigative story that details renovations at the court that cost more than $3.7 million.

“Absolutely infuriated after watching @wchs8fox11 report on WV Supreme Court frivolous spending. It’s a horrible slap in the face to all struggling West Virginians,” said a twitter post by Del. Jordan Hill, R-Nicholas. “It is time they have @wvlegislature oversight.”

The story by Eyewitness News Lead Political Reporter Kennie Bass details the court expenditures that include a $32,000 sofa with $17,000 in throw pillows.

On Tuesday during an interview on the "Tom Roten Morning Show" on the radio, Del. Michael Folk, R-Berkeley, said as a result of the investigative story about Supreme Court spending he is drafting a constitutional amendment that would bring the Supreme Court's budget under the approval of the Legislature, just like other state agencies.
