West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice is calling lawmakers back for another special legislative session.

WVPB will televise live  coverage of the Special Session Monday on The West Virginia Channel on  November 18 beginning at Noon. A live stream will also be available on on our YouTube channel and at wvpublic.org.

The Republican governor on Thursday issued a proclamation to have the legislature take up bills dealing with tourism tax credits, expunging DUI offenses and the state road fund on Monday.

The governor already had lawmakers reconvene for an education-focused special session this summer, where the legislature passed a GOP bill allowing the state’s first charter schools. The measure has sharp criticism from Democrats and educators in the state.

Lawmakers are scheduled to be in the state Capitol on Monday for committee meetings.
