WVEA Legislative Update #1 (Jan. 17, 2020)

The first full week of the 2020 Legislative Session has come to a close! It has been a slow start for education-related bills, but some things have been moving.

SB 192 – WVSSAC Audit. This bill caused several delays this week in the Senate Education Committee. It was first brought up during Tuesday’s meeting and carried over to Thursday’s meeting. This bill would require the Legislative Auditor to do performance audits of the WV Secondary School Activities Commission. After hearing from a coach, the SSAC executive director and other interested parties the committee ultimately passed the bill out of committee. It should be on the Senate floor next week.
