General Assembly Coming to a Close

Several key bills are pending in both the state House and Senate with just three days left in the legislative session.

Among the bills waiting to be considered is a mine safety bill that would increase the number of inspections at underground coal mines.

Lawmakers are also wrangling over a Senate-backed plan that calls for the Senate to sell more than eight-million dollars in bonds to help shore up the state pensions of teachers and state employees.

House speaker Jody Richards says he hopes the General Assembly will complete its work on Monday returning into session only to consider overriding vetoes by the Governor.
