Special Session Call Coming

Gov. Joe Manchin is expected to call the Legislature into a special session at 5 p.m. Tuesday, once lawmakers finishes their monthly series of interim meetings that began Sunday.

The Associated Press reports that Manchin has "has discussed addressing fuel costs" with legislative leaders, beyond the $5 million proposed to help county schools with gas and diesel bills.

The session is also likely to revive six to eight bills vetoed during the regulars session, propose several supplemental funding measures and dedicate $20 million to $25 million for the successful teacher pension transfer plan.
