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.

No child left hungry
Kids shouldn’t have to go hungry – that’s a no-brainer, right? We thought so too, until we saw the House Education and Workforce Committee’s draft of the bill to reauthorize the children’s nutrition programs.
