Returning & Reporting
With the onset of the West Virginia State Capitol area water woes from the public water contamination last Thursday, the West Virginia State Legislature recessed last Friday, without doing any business and voting to resume business today (Monday) at 1:00 PM.
I immediately left to return to my home in Falling Waters, but then, as is my usual practice, returned to the State Capitol early the next day (Saturday) and continued to work on legislative projects at my State House office. (On Sundays, I attend Church here in the State Capitol area and rest)
Then, late on Saturday, I received word from the Speaker of the House of Delegates, informing me that, due to the continuation of the pubic water woes in the State Capitol area, the plans were to, after convening the Legislature on Monday (today), to again not conduct any business and then recess again until the following Monday (next week).
Those plans now again have been changed.
The current situation is that the Legislature will convene at 1:00 PM today (Monday) and without conducting any business, but reconvene at 6:00 PM on Tuesday evening (tomorrow), with the expectation and hope that all legislative business will be back on track thereafter.
