West Virginia Lawmakers once again tackle education in special session

June 1st, 2019 by WCBC Radio

Senate President Mitch Carmichael wants to spend this weekend on the Student Success Act, a new version of the omnibus education bill.  Carmichael released a draft version of the 144-page education bill last week, saying he hopes senators can read it, consider it, propose amendments and be ready to act. Carmichael says the intention is to begin and complete the session during the weekend which he admits will require a high degree of coordination and cooperation within Senate membership. The House of Delegates is taking a different approach. Delegates are dividing among four select committees to consider individual bills. At least 10 have been introduced in the House of Delegates already, but Speaker Roger Hanshaw has said dozens will be considered over about a week.
