Manchin Issues Special Session Call

As The Associated Press reports, "taxes, education and West Virginia's energy industries are among the topics Gov. Joe Manchin's wants tackled during an imminent special legislative session."

Manchin issued a call late Friday that identifies 11 bills, including nine that failed during the recent regular session.

"Each of those had passed at least one chamber, while five had passed both: a filing error killed one of them, while the rest died in committees assigned to reconcile House-Senate differences," AP notes.

Those five are also among the six bills on the call that were on Manchin's special session agenda.
