TLTpodcastSlate1.jpg

    

In the third full week of this legislative session both chambers are poised to vote on bills that could see vetoes from Governor Tomblin--one to make West Virginia a Right-to-Work state, the other, to repeal the state’s prevailing wage.

The chairs of the House and Senate Government Organization Committees discuss the proposed repeal as well as a possible change to the state's Home Rule Pilot Program.

Members of the House of Delegates continue their clash over a bill necessary to fund the current budget year. The bill calls for a $52 million withdrawal of money from the state's Rainy Day Fund.
