The article reports that West Virginia Governor Bob Wise announced that he is considering calling a special session of the Legislature before his term expires in January to try to legalize table gambling in the state, a measure he says could help address the state's impending budget deficit over the next three fiscal years. Wise, who is preparing an initial budget as a likely guideline for governor-elect and fellow Democrat Joe Manchin, will leave office January 17. Manchin's newly created economic team released findings last month that showed the state could face deficits totaling more than $380 million in the next three fiscal years, despite a surplus this year.
