Campus Carry And Appalachian Writers Workshop To Return, This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, Senate Bill 10 is expected to pass the House of Delegates this week. The bill would allow people with concealed carry permits to have guns on college campuses. Government Reporter Randy Yohe spoke with Del. Evan Hansen, D-Monongalia, and Sen. Mike Stuart, R-Kanawha, to get a better understanding on the bill.

Also, in this show, last summer’s flooding in eastern Kentucky caught the Hindman Settlement School in the middle of its annual Appalachian Writers Workshop. Everyone at the workshop made it home safely, but the school was hit hard.

Recently, the school announced plans for this year’s Appalachian Writers Workshop. Inside Appalachia Producer Bill Lynch spoke with workshop organizer Josh Mullins about the flood and this year’s workshop.
