The Legislature Today: Prevailing Wage Repeal Heads to Governor's Desk

TLTpodcastSlate1.jpg

Two contentious pieces of legislation--one repealing the prevailing wage and the other making West Virginia a Right-to-Work state --see votes on the Senate and House floors, respectively.

Both pass by slim majorities with some lawmakers even crossing party lines in the process.

The prevailing wage repeal heads to Governor Tomblin's desk, but Right-to-Work will return to the Senate after some amendments in the House.

Also, a special report tonight on the state of West Virginia’s roads and bridges.
