Reporter Roundtable Recaps First Week Of 2024 Session And Looks Ahead


On this episode of The Legislature Today, it was the second annual Fairness For All Day in the Capitol rotunda. This is an opportunity for the LGTBQ+ community from around the state to rally together and lobby for legislation.

Also, the Senate closed out its first week after passing 36 bills and introducing 143 more. Briana Heaney has more.

We also introduce a new segment this year featuring two high school students who are helping us out by presenting a weekly story about the inner workings of the legislature.

And, before lawmakers gaveled in this week, they got a rundown on the state of West Virginia’s economy. Curtis Tate has that story.

Finally, we have a roundtable with WVPB reporters who recap the first days of the 2024 session and discuss what’s to come over the next eight weeks.
