The Session(s) to Come

The Legislature may have some heavy lifting ahead, The Associated Press reports, as education-related issues and the funding shortfall from retiree health benefits remain unresolved.

"The state's teachers are at the center of both issues," the article said. "The groups representing them are bracing for a tough fight ahead. They also appear ready to compromise with Manchin and lawmakers on some key areas."

But the article also observes that these groups "others involved in these two looming tasks differ on whether the Legislature should target both during the same special session."
