Senate Democrats debut education bills

May 18, 2019

CHARLESTON — Senate Democrats in West Virginia have debuted a series of bills ahead of a special legislative session on education.

The lawmakers posted eight bills online Thursday and say they’ll be formally introduced Monday.

The proposals include expanding vocational programs to middle schools, a teacher pay raise and putting mental health professionals in schools.

The House and Senate were set to reconvene for the special session next week, but a Senate spokeswoman says they instead will be working on vetoed bills. She says education measures will be taken up in June.
