Capital Eye Special Edition: Special Session
It's hard to know where to begin to unravel the latest appearance of the Zombie Education Deform Bill. Back from the grave of the regular 2019 legislative session, it regained life last month when Senate President Mitch Charmichael, resurrected it - much in the same form as the original, but with even harsher slaps at teacher strikes and organized labor.

Take Action: Tell the CFBP to keep its strong payday lending rule!
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) is rolling back a recently created rule that requires predatory payday lenders to make affordable loans. Without this rule, payday loan sharks can prey on vulnerable consumers with debt trap loans causing default on other bills, overdraft fees, and even bankruptcy. Even though payday lending is illegal in West Virginia, many people fall victim to predatory lending in our neighboring states or online. A strong rule is so important to protect people from falling into the debt trap. More
