Bluefield Daily Telegraph (Newspaper) - July 18, 1967, Bluefield, West Virginia
2 Bluefield doily Telegraph tuesday july is 1967 special session of state legislature a entirely possible Smith talks with leaders Charleston a gov. Hulett Smith monday said it is a entirely possible that a special session of the legislature will be called for september or Early october if a a Congress passes legislation now in a conference committee requiring redistricting of congressional districts. A state legislative leadership agrees on a couple of other matters which they think need a immediate attention a and would take some of the work Load off the upcoming 30-Day legislative session in january. General agreement Smith said he conferred with legislative leaders and there now is general agreement on calling a special session provided enough can be accomplished to make it worthwhile. Rut Smith said before he would Issue the Call a a we Dall have to agree on the a matters that May warranty the special attention. Smith indicated that the overriding question would be to re solve congressional redistricting if it proves necessary. In Washington both the Senate and the House of representatives have passed separate redistricting Bills which now Are before a conference committee to work out the differences. Smith said he would prefer to have the legislature accomplish the redistricting As soon As possible than to wait for the regular session in january. He said this would give next years candidates for the House ample time to study the new congressional districts before the filing deadline for the May primary election. Possible dates Smith said dates for the special session could be sometime in mid september at the time the legislative interim committed planned to meet or possibly around the first of october. This would depend on the action in Congress on the redistricting Bill he said. Smith said if the legislature can accomplish an adequate redistricting map congressmen could avoid the necessity of having to run at Large in the primary election. Among other matters that could be taken up at a special session is rewriting a Section of the state water pollution Law aimed at cracking Down on Salt water pollution of the to Camahco River in Roane comfy. Bit Smith indicated evidence be has seen and which will be presented to a legislature interim committee hearing tuesday shows that no matter what action the legislature May take the problem of Salt water pollution from Oil and Gas Wells in the Sis Sonvile area will be there As Long As the Oil and Gas Wells Are operating. A if new legislation wont do \ something positive for that area or prevent something i from occurring somewhere Smith said he would tend to Disfavour calling a special session to handle the water Issue alone.
