People had the chance to express their opinion of the state's business climate in Huntington Thursday night.
West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey hosted town hall meetings in both Cabell and Wayne counties.
The goal was to open dialogue between Morrisey and local business owners so they can say what they think about state and federal regulations.
"The reality is West Virginia has such incredible potential,” Morrisey said. “We're the third largest producer of energy, we have competitive wages in terms of our work force, we're located in a strategic position naturally, but we're right near the bottom on some of the major economic indicators."
The meetings were part of a statewide jobs summit and listening tour.
