Take Action: Public Hearing on Repealing WV’s Nuclear Power Plant Ban – Jan 28th, 10AM

There will be a Public Hearing on HB 2882, relating to repealing a ban on construction of nuclear power plants, on Friday, January 28, 2022 at 10 a.m. in the House Chamber.

Wear your N95’s and come share your voice. We have had enough industries polluting our state. We don’t need to add nuclear waste to that list.

Here is a Charleston Gazette-Mail article with details about the bill: https://www.wvgazettemail.com/news/legislative_session/wv-house-to-host-public-hearing-on-bill-to-lift-restrictions-on-nuclear-power-plant/article_c786ad66-4d16-5767-8858-6caad2978fd9.html

UPDATE 2/27/22: Although the hearing is being held by the House Committee on Government Organization, the committee has already advanced the bill to the full House, which will be voting this coming Monday, January 31, on an identical bill (SB 4) passed by the Senate earlier this week.

The WV Environmental Council has made it easy to send an email to every member of the House (click here and follow the instructions), although it is most effective to call or send a personal email to your delegate(s)

Please note that the House will convene for its daily floor session tomorrow at 9 AM, and the hearing will begin at 10 AM or after the floor session, whichever is later.
