Charleston, W.Va. (AP) -- Gov. Joe Manchin has signed a diverse range of 10 bills into law, touching on everything from alternative energy sources to extra help for third and eighth grade students.

Manchin approved the legislation Wednesday during a morning ceremony at his state capitol reception room.

Some of the measures are corrected versions of regular session bills that the governor had vetoed because of technical errors.

Lawmakers fixed those bills during last month's session for the state budget.

The rest of the measures signed Wednesday were rescued during a special session earlier this month.

Those had nearly passed during the year's regular session, but fell just short despite support among lawmakers.
