CHARLESTON, W.Va. — The House of Delegates voted to establish four select committees to consider education matters during a special session to change the state’s school system.

This happened during the first moments of the resumption of a special session that, so far, does not include education reform. Instead, lawmakers were passing bills that had been vetoed by the governor for technical reasons.

The legislative majorities continue to talk about June as the target date to focus the special session on education.

All House members are to take part in one of the four select committees, although the Speaker did not assign himself to one. A late add to Committee C was Delegate Chuck Little, R-Wood, who was just sworn in Monday morning.
