A Foster Care Investigation And How Redistricting Could Shake Up W.Va. On This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, kids in foster care are already facing a tough road, but a new investigation reveals that some are sent to out-of-state facilities, some of which have been flagged by the state’s own Department of Health and Human Resources as problematic.

Also, in this show, West Virginia lawmakers on Monday will meet at the state capitol in a special session. They’ll decide on new statehouse and congressional districts to use for the next ten years.
