Climate Change: The Evidence, People and Our Options
Join us for a fascinating evening as Dr. Ellen Mosley-Thompson and Dr.
Lonnie G. Thompson discuss the controversial topic of climate change.
The lecture is free to the public but reserved seating and tickets are
required. Free tickets may be reserved or picked up in advance and also
will be available at the door the evening of the lecture.
there was a ‘silver lining’ in the 2010 U.S. Supreme Court ruling in
Citizens United v. the FEC, it’s that the court overwhelming affirmed
that state can require those who ‘pay to play’ in our elections to fully
disclose their financial sources.
On Friday, the House Judiciary Committee advanced a comprehensive
bill (HB 4463) relating to the disclosure of information on campaign
contributions and spending.
The bill would increase accountability and transparency in West Virginia
Unfortunately, conservative groups like Americans Prosperity don’t want you to know who’s really behind their efforts to influence our elections and are spreading misinformation about how HB 4463 restricts freedom of speech and freedom of association.
Call your delegate(s) now and urge them to support transparency in elections and accountability to shareholders by supporting HB 4463. Click here to find contact information for your delegate(s).

SB 373, the Above Ground Storage Tank bill was discussed today in the House Judiciary Committee. The Committee will likely take up the bill and consider amendments at Wednesday’s Judiciary meeting. Listen into House Judiciary Committee Meeting half an hour after the floor session!
This bill will allow the Public Service Commission to begin the process of having our electric utilities weigh in energy efficiency into the mix when doing long range planning on how they will meet future demand. It is a small step in the right direction so calls are needed to all House members since this bill is up for passage tomorrow during the floor session.
