Energy Issues And Housing Costs On This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, West Virginia has long been an energy state. But where that energy comes from is changing. Natural gas is replacing coal in power plants and renewable energy is gaining ground.

Energy & Environment Reporter Curtis Tate talks about the two pieces of legislation with Del. Bill Anderson, R-Wood, Chairman of the House Energy Committee, and Del. Kayla Young, D-Kanawha, Minority Vice Chair of the House Energy Committee.

Also, in this show, America faces a long-term affordable housing crisis – created by a serious overall shortage in housing. In our latest episode of Us & Them, host Trey Kay takes us to rural communities and urban developments to see how the situation plays out.
