West Virginia lawmakers recap past legislative session

West Virginia
The Berkeley Springs-Morgan County Chamber of Commerce held their annual legislative dinner.
West Virginia lawmakers were at the dinner and were there to recap the past legislative session.
Many lawmakers agreed the session was good for the most part as the legislature passed a balanced budget. However, some delegates and senators agreed the one thing that still needs to take place is the passing of the comprehensive education reform bill.
“We rank fairly high in per capita as far as how much we pay per student. We don’t manage it well. We need reform along with that pay raise,” said Delegate Larry Kump, R-59.
Gov. Jim Justice has called for there to be a special session, which will begin at the end of May.
