Week 5: Halfway
Thursday was the halfway point in this session and we are fast approaching the last day to introduce bills in the Senate (Monday, February 23) and House (Tuesday, February 24). So far 1,243 bills have been introduced. The week started with a great press conference on protecting our water with speakers from WV Environmental Council member groups, the WV Council of Churches, and Charleston NAACP - all calling for keeping our drinking water clean and safe, and opposing legislation to roll back protections. Our water warrior, Karan Ireland, moderated the event and gave a strong personal testimony to kick it off.

Week 2: Net Metering Saved, Action Needed on Energy Efficiency
This Friday is the tenth day, and the first full week of the 2015 legislature. On Monday, the Martin Luther King, Jr. State Holiday Commission’s celebration was held at Asbury United Methodist Church ending with a march at noon to the Capitol and the ringing of the liberty bell. The same day, the West Virginia Education Association held a rally for teachers and UE (United Electrical Workers) Local 170 rallied with the state workers they represent.

Week 1: Join Us for MLK, Jr. Day & Other Upcoming Events
The 2015 WV Legislature opened Wednesday evening with Governor Tomblin’s State of the State Address exhorting the legislature to work “together” for the betterment of our citizens. Meanwhile, the Senate introduced 232 bills and the House total was 56. These range from allowing raw milk to be sold to allowing folks to carry a concealed gun without a permit. It’s comforting to know the majority of these will never get out the other end of the legislative sausage grinder. It’s scary to contemplate the ones that might make it along with the few we’d like to see pass.
