CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Two West Virginia lawmakers have started a bipartisan tech caucus to focus on business startups and job creation.

Delegates Moore Capito and Shawn Fluharty announced the creation of the caucus on Wednesday.

A news release from the delegates says the group will host experts to find ways the state can boost its tech sector. It will be open to all lawmakers as well as the public.

Fluharty and Capito will co-chair the caucus. A meeting schedule will be announced after the start of the 2020 legislative session in January.
