Pipeline Problems, Student Protests And A Voter’s Guide, This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, a pipeline safety watchdog said federal regulators “should be on notice” about a pressure test failure on the Mountain Valley Pipeline earlier this month.

Plus, students at West Virginia University’s Morgantown campus demonstrated in support of Palestine for the second time in as many weeks. Reporter Chris Schulz covered the protest from downtown Morgantown.

With the May 14 primary election fast approaching, nonprofit newsroom Mountain State Spotlight has created a statewide voter’s guide. West Virginia Public Broadcasting’s News Director Eric Douglas spoke with Editor-in-Chief Ken Ward about the guide and how to access it.
