Lawmakers Discuss Judicial Redistricting On This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, one issue before the West Virginia Legislature this year is judicial redistricting. That means balancing out the number of judges covering the state to make sure that every case gets heard in a timely manner.

Government Reporter Randy Yohe spoke with Del. Moore Capito, R-Kanawha, and Sen. Charles Trump, R-Morgan, the chairmen of the House and Senate Judiciary committees, to talk about the decision making process and other legislative legal issues. 

Also, in this show, the Senate voted unanimously Monday to encourage Mon Power to purchase a power plant in northern West Virginia to save it from closing. Energy & Environment Reporter Curtis Tate has more on what this might mean for ratepayers.
