House Adopts Resolution Naming Bridge After Former Delegate Larry W. Border
Today, House Resolution 49 was adopted requesting the state name a bridge over Tygart Creek on County 54, Route 14, near Mineral Wells, the Larry W. Border Memorial Bridge in memory of the beloved former delegate from Wood County. A second concurrent resolution, House Resolution 30, was also adopted commemorating the life of the Honorable Virginia Rae "Ginny" Starcher, educator, civic leader, and public servant. These resolution must now be approved by the Senate.

The House reconvened today to pass seven bills, advance 12 bills to third reading, and advance 10 bills to second reading.

Among the seven bills passed was House Bill 2563, which would reduce the daily administrative time required of school counselors and increasing the time actually spent in counseling at-risk students. This would allow for at-risk students to receive more one-on-one time and attention with their counselors.

House Bill 2888, which would allow members of a policemen's civil service commission to serve on other local boards and commissions, was advanced to third reading along with 11 other bills.

House Bill 2866, which would provide an exception to allow a resident of a dwelling house to discharge a firearm in a lawful manner within five hundred feet, was advanced to second reading along with nine other bills.

The following committees will meet today:
House Finance - 30 minutes following floor session - 460M
