Minority Leadership Responds To State Of The State And Legislature Looks At Energy, Health Bills


On this week’s episode of The Legislature Today, reporter Curtis Tate brings us a recap of Gov. Jim Justice’s 2022 State of the State address. The governor was expected to give his speech two weeks ago but tested positive for COVID-19 the day before the scheduled event.

Also, reporter June Leffler speaks with Senate Minority Leader Stephen Baldwin, D-Greenbrier, and House Minority Whip Shawn Fluharty, D-Ohio, who share their reactions to the governor’s speech. WVPB invited House Minority Leader Doug Skaff, D-Kanawha, to the program, but he had a conflict.

Finally, reporter Liz McCormick wraps up news from week three of the legislative session, and Randy Yohe reports on economic development efforts for small towns and communities in West Virginia.
