A Look At Voting Legislation And A Stark Rise In Lung Disease, This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, a record 158 million people voted in the 2020 presidential election. But over the past year, both Republicans and Democrats have tried to pass polarizing voting rights laws. We explore what this could mean for West Virginia.

Also, in this show, a recent report from the American Lung Association shows West Virginians have some of the highest rates of lung disease and the factors that cause it.
