A Reporter Roundtable And Expanding Health Care For Veterans On This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, we listen back to our Friday reporter roundtable on The Legislature Today. Steven Allen Adams from Ogden Newspapers joined our statehouse reporters Randy Yohe and Chris Schulz in the studio.

Also, in this episode, starting at the beginning of the year, the office of Veterans Affairs began processing claims relating to the PACT Act, a piece of legislation that expands health care for veterans exposed to burn pits, Agent Orange and other toxic substances. Shepherd Snyder spoke with Patrick Zondervan, Acting Director of the Huntington VA Regional Office, on what that means for West Virginia veterans.
