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! More

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. More
