Governor Questions Concealed Carry Bill


  At the Legislature today, Senators begin to focus in on the state's four billion dollar budget as they wait for Delegates to approve some major pieces of legislation, like charter schools and campaign finance reform. The West Virginia schools for the deaf and blind will be eligible for funding from the School Building Authority for badly needed improvements under a bill passed by the senate finance committee today.

And, on our last episode of the season, Governor Earl Ray Tomblin joins us to look back on this session on The Legislature Today. He raises questions about the need for a bill to eliminate permits on concealed weapons.
