CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- West Virginia lawmakers are taking another look at the state's reimbursements to property owners for cleaning up methamphetamine labs.
Under a 2007 law, the reimbursements are made through the Crime Victims Compensation Fund.
The Charleston Gazette reports that meth lab cleanup expenses are draining the fund. Reimbursements have increased from about $38,000 in 2008 to $717,000 in 2012.
House Speaker Tim Miley tells the newspaper that the issue needs to be addressed. He says there soon won't be any funds remaining for victims of other crimes.
Proposed solutions include reimbursing property owners through another agency, or stopping such payments.
