CHARLESTON - 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. Reimbursements have increased from about $38,000 in 2008 to $717,000 in 2012.

Proposed solutions include reimbursing property owners through another agency, or stopping such payments
