Arkansas to West Virginia: Code Conflict Exchange

The SLC arranged for legislative staff from Arkansas’s Bureau of Legislative Research to travel to Charleston, West Virginia, to learn about West Virginia’s nationally recognized model of identifying code conflicts during the legislative session. Participants in this Legislative Staff Exchange Program received briefings on identifying bills with conflicting code sections, what to do when conflicts occur, and observed a demonstration of West Virginia’s bill status system.
