Keep WV Funded: Take Action to Stop Dangerous Tax Cuts!
Right now the Governor and the Legislature are sparring over the best way to give tax cuts to the wealthy and big businesses — at our expense. Every West Virginian would pay the price because of the gaps that would be left in the state budget. We need a budget that reflects our priorities: investments in programs that benefit all West Virginians, not tax cuts for the wealthiest.

Also keep reading to learn more about health care bills we're keeping an eye on, action on environmental and climate legislation, election bills that are gaining traction, and other major actions in the House and Senate.
