Chancellor of W.Va. CTC System Hopeful for ‘Last Dollar In’ Bill to Survive

TLT_facebook.png

It’s Day 50, Crossover Day, and the last day for Senate bills to get out of the Senate, and for House bills to get out of the House. This determines whether those bills are to survive this session. We recap the day’s action, and we also look at the latest on SB 1 – the “last dollar in” community and technical college bill.

Senior Statehouse Reporter Dave Mistich joins host Suzanne Higgins to sum up both the House and Senate’s marathon days on the floor.

The very first Senate bill introduced this session is awaiting action in the House Finance Committee. SB 1 would provide tuition assistance to in-state students seeking education from a community and technical college. We’re joined by Sarah Tucker, Chancellor of the West Virginia Community and Technical College System, to discuss the latest proceedings on this bill.
