WATCH the Conference Committee Meets to Discuss WV Teacher Pay Raise Bill

CHARLESTON, WV (WOWK) - Lawmakers from both houses and parties met last night to try and come up with a compromise for teacher pay. 

In their 2nd meeting, it was announced that the Senate has offered the house a deal, but they wouldn't say what it was.

Delegates say a five percent teacher pay raise needs to happen so schools can re-open, but senators say they are skeptical of West Virginia Governor Jim Justice's revenue projections.

The conference committee will meet at 10 AM on Tuesday, March 6th, 2018. Delegates and a Senator are calling for an immediate vote.

Our Chief Political Reporter Mark Curtis will be there and bring you the very latest online and on 13 news at noon.
