Education Leaders Talk Legislative Priorities


On this episode of The Legislature Today, the state’s political, business and community leaders generally agree that a quality education is the key to West Virginia’s future.

Education Reporter Chris Schulz sat down with Sen. Amy Grady, R-Mason, the Senate Education Committee chair, and Del. David Elliot Pritt, D-Fayette, the Minority vice chair of the House Education Committee, to learn more about what is being done to secure the state’s future.

Also, it was a relatively quiet day at the West Virginia Legislature, with the Senate only passing three bills.

The House Finance Committee debated a wide variety of bills that were recommended for passage. One highlighted the Form Energy project, and another addressed the shortage of qualified school bus drivers.

Finally, it was Domestic Violence Awareness Day at the Capitol. Chris Schulz has the story.
