Special Session Continues

The Associated Press reports on the passage of the bulk of governor Joe Manchin's special session agenda, including his proposed relief from gas taxes. AP also notes the lingering, mostly partisan-line brinksmanship over the electioneering communications measure.

Those focusing on the gas tax item include The Charleston Gazette, The Register-Herald and The State Journal.

MetroNews highlights the related concerns regarding the struggling State Road Fund, with audio of Sen. Brooks McCabe, D-Kanawha, on the topic.

MetroNews, the Beckley newspaper, The Gazette and Public Broadcasting also report separately on the electioneering fight. The latter has audio, while MetroNews has some of its interview with House Judiciary Chairwoman Carrie Webster, D-Kanawha.

MetroNews also reports on the tapping of surplus money for the gas tax item and other measures.
