Watch the public forum the WV House of Delegates held Monday evening about the Elk River chemical spill.

On this special extended edition of The Legislature Today,  citizens tell lawmakers how they’ve been affected by the chemical contamination of their drinking water. 

The hearing focused on Senate Bill 373, which is designed to regulate and inspect above ground storage facilities like the one involved in the Freedom Industries spill. The bill recently passed the state Senate and is now under consideration in the House.
