PINEVILLE, W.Va. (AP) - Two state lawmakers say they are planning to resign within about a week.

Democrat Linda Goode Phllips says she will resign on Dec. 31 and won’t seek another term in the House of Delegates. Republican Amanda Pasdon says she’s resigning Jan. 1 from the House.

The Register-Herald (https://bit.ly/22pYM1b ) reports that Phillips announced her resignation on Tuesday.

In a news release Wednesday, Pasdon said she is leaving for personal and family reasons. The Monongalia County lawmaker is a business development director and was first elected to the House in 2010.

Phillips is a retired elementary school counselor and business owner. The Wyoming County lawmaker was first elected to the House in 2008.

Local committees will recommend successors to Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin, who will appoint replacements.
