WVU speaks to House Ed

Rob Alsop (from left), West Virginia University's vice president for strategic initiatives; Joyce McConnell, WVU's provost/VP for academic affairs; Melissa White, chief counsel for the House Education Committee; and Bob Roberts, WVU Police chief; spoke to House Education Committee members Friday.

The House Education Committee advanced Friday legislation that would require public two-year and four-year colleges to allow people to carry concealed guns on their campuses, including in their buildings and at sporting events, if those individuals have permits.

The bill passed on a voice vote with multiple “no’s” heard, and it’s now heading to the House Judiciary Committee.
