CHARLESTON, W.Va. — The 2018 session of the 83rd West Virginia Legislature started with a bang Wednesday, with more than 500 bills being introduced in both houses and a delegate calling for the removal of the Speaker of the House.
Bills introduced focus on topics ranging from opioid prescribing limitations to eliminating Social Security income tax.
Del. Marshall Wilson, R-Berkeley, rose in the House of Delegates after roll-over bills were introduced to call for the removal of Tim Armstead, R-Kanawha, as Speaker of the House. The motion was quickly squashed with a voice vote.
Armstead declined to comment on the matter, but he did release a letter to Wilson removing him from his committee appointments.
