We’re now in the 5th week of session and have reached the halfway mark (Day 30). The pace is accelerating. Committees’ agendas and floor sessions are growing longer.

With so much happening so fast, your calls and notes to legislators are needed every week, so please keep them coming and Tell Them What You Want! More

Capital Eye Vol. 17 No. 2
The Legislature is now in full swing and living up to its reputation as the ‘Bad Idea Factory’, as Delegate Mike Pushkin (D-Kanawha) often refers to it. On the bright side, the pace of new bills being introduced has slowed, but we are approaching 1,600. The break down is 1,055 House bills and 543 Senate bills. And it's not all bad — there are some good things happening, too — like the rescheduled ‘Save Our Solar’ Rally happening this Saturday, Jan. 27 at 2PM in the Lower Rotunda. More
