June 16–CHARLESTON — Moving with a sense of urgency, House and Senate leaders agreed Wednesday to name a special, 10-member task force to prepare acceptable Marcellus shale legislation in time for a special session this summer.
By the end of the week, Speaker Rick Thompson, D-Wayne, and acting Senate President Jeffrey Kessler, D-Marshall, plan to choose five members apiece from their respective chambers.
Acting Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin met with both men shortly before the Joint Committee on Government and Finance approved the task force and afterward said he is willing to put the stalled Marcellus proposal on his agenda, if a consensus develops.
