BECKLEY - Southern West Virginia officials gathered in Beckley to discuss with legislators different solutions to ongoing issues in the area.

The Beckley-Raleigh County Chamber of Commerce (BRCCC) held their second annual Legislative Luncheon Thursday afternoon. Speakers talked about issues regarding prevailing wage, highways and the drug epidemic.

Victor Flanagan, chairman of BRCCC, said the luncheon is a way to get feedback about what can be done through the legislative system. “We had a wonderful discussion last year and anytime we can have a forum like this that we can get as many as possible together, we like to try to do it.

Representatives from sectors such as business, education and law enforcement took part in the forum.
