Each week keeps getting wilder at the 2019 legislature. Last week was no exception. Wednesday was “Crossover Day”, when all bills needed to be passed out of their “house of origin.” It was a week of highs and lows, but mostly lows.

As you’ll be able to see from this abbreviated list of bills in our update, there is much yet to do at this crazy legislative session. Watch out for possible mid- or late-week actions as things unfold. Your input puts the “public” in public policy and is essential to keep the bad guys at bay. Keep those calls, e-mails and visits to lawmakers coming.

Read on to see what mischief, mayhem and madness transpired this past week and what’s ahead!

One Week to Go @ WV Legislature!

On Tuesday, the Senate passed a major campaign finance overhaul bill that would allow even more big money into a system that already favors the wealthy and special interests. SB 622 increases campaign contribution limits from $1,000 to $2,800 for candidates, to $5,000 for PACs, and to $10,000 per year for party committees.
