With the last few days of the legislative session in sight, House members voted on several bills March 4 during their morning floor session.

One of the bills passed was Senate Bill 90, which would make it a criminal offense to intentionally interfere with or prevent a person form calling emergency service personnel.

Senate Bill 405 would protect a juror's private information by limiting the availability of juror questionnaire forms.

House Bill 4384 has completed legislative action, so it now will go to Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin for action. The bill would require teachers of students with exceptional needs to be present at an individualized education program meeting or to read and sign a copy of the individualized education program plan.

Senate Bill 470 also has completed legislation. It would mandate that completed grand jury questionnaire forms are confidential and could only be released from the court clerk's custody with the written permission of the circuit court.
