Legislature 2010: Day 10

  • The House of Delegates is approaching a vote on Gov. Joe Manchin's school calendar bill, The Register-Herald of Beckley reports. As observed earlier by The Associated Press, the measure to have counties set the start and stop dates emerged unchanged from that chamber's Education Committee.
  • The Charleston Gazette highlights the role of federal stimulus funds in Manchin's proposed budget for public schools.
  • MetroNews reports that the attorney general's office could need more lawyers, support staff and funding if the Supreme Court changes its rules to increase the number of appeals that receive full hearings.
  • A bill introduced in the House would block "courts from forcing reporters to testify about their sources," The Register-Herald reports.
