Stateline Newsroom

Since the inception of the Division of Personnel in 1989, Stateline has been a vehicle to provide information to West Virginia State Government employees, informing them about benefits, wellness, rules, and things that are happening in other State agencies, as well as general interest articles.

Recently, we’ve taken the format from an online newsletter to an online newsroom. Articles and information will be posted as they become available. If you’re looking for information from or about a specific State entity, click on the appropriate link to the left.

Articles for the current quarter are listed below. For articles and issues prior to the current quarter, click here.
