Demand a safe, locally owned water system!
Nearly two years after the water crisis, New Jersey-based West Virginia American Water is still refusing to invest in a safe water system, while letting our infrastructure fall apart and raising our rates! We are far from having the safe water system we need and deserve.

Huffing C8
I finally read The Huffington Post’s ”Welcome to Beautiful Parkersburg, West Virginia“ article when an international reporter called to interview me about it the other day. I originally skipped over it as I’ve followed the C8 news as the story was unfolding and even had friends who grew up there.

I have a big favor to ask of you!
The House Judiciary Committee passed SB 423 without amendment on Monday evening. We have reason to believe that your voices at last Friday’s public hearing have prevented further weakening of the bill, but we still need to beef it up or kill it altogether. We have something big to ask of you!

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.

An exciting week of events
Support Clean Water by Attending the public hearing on Monday February 16 at 8:30 am in the House of Delegates Chamber at the state capitol on House Bill 2289, a DEP bill that would reclassify the Kanawha River as a Catagory A drinking water source. This would allow a secondary drinking water intake to be built on the Kanawha River. Having a secondary intake would make the 300,000 people who depend on Charleston's water far less likely to lose their water again as they did last year.

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.
