ACTION ALERT: Protect Public Services by Keeping the WV Income Tax; Citizens Guide to Online Advocacy
Shifting more taxes onto low and middle income citizens is not fair – this is what efforts to reduce or eliminate the income tax will do - raise other taxes on low-income and middle-income families, and will result in cuts to public services that benefit all families and businesses. More

ACTION ALERTS: From Week 2 of the 2021 WV Legislative Session
Contact Your Legislators about These Bills & Resolutions! Since many important bills are moving so fast up at the legislature, we’ve decided to pull together a mid-week action list to help folks keep up with the dizzy pace at the capitol. We’ve never seen so much proposed legislation referenced to only one committee (which is usually a signal that leadership wants it ‘greased’). Take a look below and take action on those issues that call out for it. Please contact your Legislators Right Away. Let your voices be heard. Visit www.wvlegislature.gov to find who represents YOU in the WV House and Senate, and how to contact them. More
