Charleston, WV (AP) -- Weeks of speculation will soon end as lawmakers return to the state capitol to take care of unfinished business.
The first item on the agenda is the budget, which the legislature will tackle in an extended session.
The 60-day regular session ended in April with no budget for the coming fiscal year.
After that, Gov. Joe Manchin plans a special session with an agenda that could include everything from reviving dead bills to looking at new measures sought by lawmakers.
House speaker Rick Thompson says the legislature will take up bills vetoed for technical reasons on Tuesday.
Republican minority leader Tim Armstead says he hopes the legislature will stick to a relatively narrow focus of addressing matters that came up during the regular session.
