Legislature’s back; Charleston heats up

Ron GREGORYJanuary 12, 2019

It is always an interesting time when the Legislature is back in town. There are always fascinating issues, the height of intrigue and major decisions to make.

Of course, what fascinates legislators does not always cause intrigue among the electorate. High tension, back stabbing and more often bridge naming, for example, highlight the sessions.

That’s the subject that caused all breakdown in positive relations between State Sen. Richard Ojeda and Delegate Rupie Phillips.

It is a major issue to the families fighting to have a bridge named in their relatives’ honor.

Such minor things (to the rest of us) take up time and energy while major legislation gets stockpiled.
