West Virginia Legislature to take to the road in August

CHARLESTON (AP) — The West Virginia Legislature is taking a road trip this summer.

House Speaker Tim Miley announced Tuesday lawmakers will convene a three-day interim session at the Bridgeport Conference Center and other area locations in August. He said legislators will also make a number of stops along Interstate 79 and throughout Harrison, Marion and Monongalia counties.

Miley says the interim sessions in north-central West Virginia will provide an opportunity for legislators from around the state to get a better understanding of the region, especially the oil and gas boom.

Miley is a Democrat from Harrison.

The Legislature is scheduled to arrive in the region on Aug. 24.
