Governor of West Virginia Bob Wise announced the opening of a special legislative session on June 10, 2003 that is expected to affect several of the state's controversial debt proposals. The session, called mainly to deal with workers compensation, will also address the problems regarding the selection of members for the state's Economic Development Grant Committee. The special session is intended to specify that all members of the grant committee are to be appointed by the governor and would legalize the criteria the committee used to approve grant applications.
