CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia state employees are getting some extra time off during the upcoming holidays.

Gov. Jim Justice has issued proclamations declaring Dec. 24 and Jan. 31 as full-day state holidays for public employees. Both fall on a Monday and were previously listed as half-day holidays.

Justice says “it is fitting and proper” that state employees get the extended time off in recognition of their hard work.
