WV Legislative Session Preparing To Begin

Lawmakers will head to Charleston next month for a 60-day legislative session that begins at noon January 12th. Lawmakers will be voting on nearly 2,000 bills. With many issues for legislators to tackle, one major issue will be whether to hold a special election for governor, and what lawmakers are hearing from some is that an election is necessary. Another issue lawmakers will discuss is redistricting. There's going to be two new senators up north and population has shrunk in the southern part of the state, creating a loss of a couple senators and house of delegate members. The work won't end when the 60th day approaches. When the session ends, interim monthly meetings from May through the following January when lawmakers go back into session.
