CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - A U.S. House committee has announced who will testify during a Charleston hearing on West Virginia’s chemical spill.

Seven people are slated to appear at the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee hearing Monday. The meeting will take place at 9 a.m. at the Kanawha County Courthouse.

The witness list includes the president of West Virginia American Water, state health, homeland security and environmental officials, the chairman of the U.S. Chemical Safety Board and county emergency and homeland security officials.

Freedom Industries President Gary Southern has been invited.

The Jan. 9 spill left 300,000 people banned from using tap water for up to 10 days.

Two W.Va. members sit on the committee -Nick Rahall, the committee’s top Democrat, and Republican Shelley Moore Capito.
