Public hearing to be held on West Virginia education bill

West Virginia's Republican House speaker is requesting a public hearing on a complex education bill.

Roger Hanshaw made the request Thursday in a letter to House education committee chairman Danny Hamrick and finance committee chairman Eric Householder.

While the committees hear from experts on questions related to the bill, Hanshaw says the public hearing will "allow those on the front lines of our education system to weigh in."

A date for the public hearing was not immediately set.

Some opponents say the Senate version of the bill passed Monday is retaliation for last year's nine-day teachers' strike.

The House version would remove a provision to require teachers to sign off annually on union dues and a clause that would invalidate the entire bill if any part is struck down
