Opioids, Coal-Fueled Energy & A Photographer Being Homesick for Appalachia

West Virginia Morning
West Virginia Public Broadcasting

On this West Virginia Morning, a U.S. House subcommittee focused on the opioid epidemic in Appalachia during a hearing on Capitol Hill.

The Allegheny Front's Reid Frazier reports on a federal commission that will decide what to do with a Trump administration proposal aimed at keeping coal and nuclear plants open. 

Also, photographer Roger May moved away from West Virginia when he was 14-years-old and says, for more than three decades, he worked to find his way back. Inside Appalachia host Jessica Lilly spoke with May shortly after he succeeded.
