CHARLESTON, W.Va. — After a few months of mainly just organizational meetings, the state legislature looks to begin substantive discussions on its interim study issues at meetings that begin Monday at the state capitol.
July interims will stretch for three days with 48 meetings scheduled. There were only three meetings held in May and a few more last month during a visit to Wheeling held in conjunction with the state’s 150th birthday.
A Finance subcommittee is scheduled to discuss magistrate court personnel and pay during a Monday meeting. An education committee will look at college tuition and fees while another committee considers a proposal to allocate some toll revenue on the West Virginia Turnpike to the Turnpike counties.
Other meetings this week will focus on the education reform bill and outcomes-based funding for higher education.
