Reporters Discuss ‘Women’s Bill of Rights’ Legislation On This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, we regularly invite reporters from outside news organizations onto our program The Legislature Today to discuss what they are seeing during the state legislative session. On Friday, Briana Heaney and Emily Rice spoke with Lori Kersey, a reporter from the independent news organization West Virginia Watch. One of the big stories on Friday was the bill called the Women’s Bill of Rights.

Also, in this show, it’s been a year since the Norfolk Southern train derailed in East Palestine, Ohio, releasing chemicals and resulting in the burning of vinyl chloride. Some residents are still worried about chemicals inside their homes. But as The Allegheny Front’s Reid Frazier reports, the EPA won’t do indoor testing.
