CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Representatives of business trade associations are gathering this week to outline their legislative agendas.

The West Virginia Business and Industry Council will hold a conference Tuesday at the Charleston Marriott.

Council chairman Chris Hamilton says the conference will bring together major industries including coal, gas, health care, automotive, power generation and retail.

Legislative leaders also plan to give an outlook for the 2015 session.

Among those scheduled to give presentations are U.S. Sen.-elect Shelley Moore Capito, state Senate President-elect Bill Cole and House Speaker-elect Tim Armstead.

Appalachian Power President and Chief Operating Officer Charles Patton will give a lunch keynote address. Afternoon panel discussions will focus on education, the tax and legal system, and the state’s economy.

A reception for newly elected lawmakers will be held afterward.
