Capital Eye, January 2017
Most of us seem relieved that 2016 is finally over. The last legislative session was rough, then the primary elections were followed by June’s 1,000 year flood, and we capped off the year by electing ‘the Apprentice’ for president. 2017 will be even more challenging. Are you ready? We are - with your input and support!

Raise revenue or make more cuts?
West Virginia is facing another budget crisis. This year's budget shortfall is expected to top $400 million. Our new governor and legislature will be faced with a decision: raise revenue or make further cuts to vital programs that aid students, the elderly, and people who work for low wages. It's time to stop the cuts and realize revenue must be part of the budget solution.

The 82nd West Virginia Legislature Scorecard
The 82nd West Virginia Legislature is made up of the 2015 and 2016 legislative sessions. It was unique in that for the first time since the middle of the last century, conservatives had control of both the House of Delegates and the state Senate. Needless to say, it was not a two year stretch of progressive lawmaking. This is one of the reasons WV Citizen Action Group decided to revive its legislative scorecard. Citizens need to know how their elected representatives voted on issues of importance, especially before the upcoming election.

We can’t let this slip by
Members of Congress are currently negotiating the budget deal to avoid a government shutdown. While there will likely be a small funding bill to extend the deadline till next week, a deal must be made soon. The main sticking point: policy riders.
