2nd public hearing set on West Virginia education bill

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — A second public hearing is set for next week on a complex education bill in West Virginia.

The House voted on Friday to hold a second public hearing on Monday at 5:30 p.m. in the House chamber in Charleston. A previously scheduled hearing will still be held that morning.

News outlets reported the additional hearing follows a request from union leaders to move the time of the hearing so teachers could participate in it.

Some opponents say the Senate version of the bill passed Monday is retaliation for last year’s nine-day teachers’ strike.

The House version would remove a provision to require teachers to sign off annually on union dues and a clause that would invalidate the entire bill if any part is struck down.
