Charleston, W.Va. (Ap) -- Taxes, education and West Virginia's energy industries are among the topics that Gov. Joe Manchin wants tackled during a special legislative session.

Manchin issued an agenda Friday to follow the ongoing extended budget session.

Besides funding measures, the call's 11 bills include nine that failed during the recent regular session.

The governor had proposed six of those. Three address student achievement or teacher hiring. The others involve renewable and alternative energy sources, post-mining land use and liquor store licensing.

Tax-related bills address high-tech property rates, a credit for parents of children with autism and a fuel tax reserve fund.

The call also deals with racetrack table game proceeds and staffing at state hospitals.
