Jim Justice’s State of the State address, and Randy Yohe brings us the minority response. Yohe speaks with Minority Leader Del. Sean Hornbuckle, D-Cabell, and Sen. Mike Caputo, D-Marion.

We also hear about nine delegates who left the House since last session along with honors for a long-time staff member who passed away recently, and the legislature recognized the longest serving woman and Republican in the Senate.
