This week we’re writing you on the heels of several West Virginia events commemorating last year’s historic Women’s March. These inspiring events show that our movement(s) are alive and well.

Keep reading for a look at some of the bad (and good) bills that are starting to work their way through the process and actions you can take, as well as some other highlights from the second week of the session.

Also if you’re in the Lewisburg area, don’t miss the Your Voice WV: Citizen Lobbyist Training tomorrow night from 5:50-7:30 PM at the Asylum. 

Yours for Action,

Team WV CAG

Two Weeks Down, Seven to Go
Friday was the 10th day of the 2018 legislative session with Senate now listing 333 bills introduced, and the House (with nearly three times the members) having 739. It's a small comfort that the majority of these will never make it out the ‘sausage grinder’ that is the legislative process. Here's a look at some of the bad (and good) bills that are starting to work their way through the process, as well as some other highlights from the second week of the session.

Stop HB 4001: Don’t Punish Families Who Rely on SNAP, Medicaid, and TANF
HB 4001 contains several measures that punish families who rely on SNAP, Medicaid or TANF, and contracts with a private vendor to verify eligibility. It is designed to do nothing more than kick people off of these programs and pay millions to a third party administrator. Call House Health Committee members and tell them not to hurt West Virginia families.
