ATLANTA - The West Virginia Legislature last week passed a $2.1 billion general fund budget for fiscal 1994 that permits issuance of about $200 million in revenue bonds for schools and jails.

The budget, passed Thursday at the end of a 12-day extended session, is 2% greater than the fiscal 1993 budget of $2.06 billion approved in 1992 but about $21 million less than requested by Gov. Gaston Caperton. The state's fiscal year begins July 1.
