CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- Declaring that West Virginia is poised to gain economic ground in the Great Recession's wake, Governor Earl Ray Tomblin detailed a legislative agenda Wednesday focusing on jobs, education and the state's natural resources.

Tomblin touted the administration's financial health and recent job gains, such as a Macy's distribution center planned for the Eastern Panhandle, during a State of the State address delivered to a packed House of Delegates chamber.

The audience included Tomblin's fellow legislators: as Senate president, the state constitution has had the Logan County Democrat acting as governor since newly elected U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin assumed his new office in November.
