Celebrating the Women Who Protect W.Va.'s Water


This morning we pay homage to women who have worked to preserve the state’s environment — especially the water.

A collaborative art exhibit at West Virginia University focuses on one of the state’s most abundant resources: water. And celebrates the many women who protect it. Brittany Patterson visited to find out more.

Headlines also include developments in news surrounding the former bishop of the state’s Catholic Church who is facing new legal allegations of drunken, sexual assult. Also the latest on a piece of federal legislation designed to facilitate clean up and redevelop surface mine land in Appalachia. Sydney Boles reports, the bill will face challenges despite bipartisan support. And Dave Mistich reports about Gov. Justice signing 266 pieces of legislation and vetoing 28 just ahead of a deadline to act on bills.
