Legislative sessions are like a snowball rolled down a steep, snowy slope. They gain speed, momentum and size as they roll… this one is no different. This means a lot has happened over the past week and there are a number of actions you can take. This coming week we hope you can join us for one or more events on legislative and congressional priorities and the need to focus on the common good.  

We also hope you can join WV CAG and allies the following week for All Kinds Are Welcome Here Lobby Day on February 8 at the State Capitol (click here to register). To prepare you for your visit to Charleston there are two more opportunities to attend a Your Voice: Citizen Lobbyist Training – February 1 at Bethany College and February 5 in Parkersburg

Yours for Action,

Team WV CAG

Health Not Politics – Stop HB 4012

On Wednesday, WV CAG and other social justice organizations joined our friends at WV FREE to launch a new Health Not Politics campaign to defeat a proposed ban on Medicaid coverage for abortions for low-income women in West Virginia. Unfortunately, the following day the House Health Committee passed HB 4012, which bans Medicaid insurance coverage for abortion. Horrifically, the House Health Committee refused to allow an exception for this coverage even in cases of rape or incest. please contact House Judiciary Chair Contact Chair John Shott (R-Mercer) at 304-340-3252 and ask him to stop HB 4012.

Our Children, Our Future 2018 Legislative Platform Includes WV Anti-Corruption / Voter Empowerment Act

As part of this year's Our Children, Our Future public policy platform, WV CAG is excited to be partnering with Fayette Fair Share to support the WV Anti-Corruption Act. The Act is about empowering voters and having a democracy where everyone participates, every vote is counted, and everyone’s voice is heard. To do this we need to close loopholes in our election and ethics laws, and change political rules that unfairly favor the wealthy and special interests. Two bills introduced this session help accomplish the goals of the Act.
