A new episode of The Coal Seam, a monthly television production of the West Virginia Coal Association and Friends of Coal, has a new episode now on the air. The December episode features interviews with expected-to-be-incoming West Virginia State Senate President Bill Cole (R-Mercer) and expected-to-be-incoming Speaker of the House of Delegates Tim Armstead (R-Kanawha).
Armstead and Cole reflected on the historic polar shift in West Virginia politics that happened November 4, when state voters gave control to the Republican Party after 83 years of Democratic control of the Legislature.
Armstead and Cole also talked about their expectations for the upcoming 2015 regular session and some of their legislative priorities.
