Day 59: where things stand
Remember that S.B. 625 provides that, when public water utilities involve the public in developing their source water protection plans, they are allowed to share information that is already in the public domain. It passed the House on Thursday and is headed to the Governor; you can read more in a Gazette-Mail report here. And more.More

Help! Clean water under attack!
We're expecting the House Judiciary Committee to take up water rules this Friday, February 5. Long story short, the regulations on aboveground storage tanks (ASTs) that were passed by the Legislature in the wake of the 2014 Freedom Industry spill have been weakened at every step of the way. More

Roundup of the Week’s Activities
So far, the House Judiciary Committee has not yet taken up the DEP rules, which were passed by the House Energy Committee last week. In particular, we are hoping to get some improvements to H.B. 4104, which is the vehicle for aboveground storage tank rules. More

Natural Gas Companies Challenge “Zones of Critical Concern” for Drinking Water
You may recall that the Aboveground Storage Tank Act that was passed in response to the Freedom Industries spill subjects to "detailed scrutiny" those aboveground tanks (ASTs) located within "zones of critical concern (ZCCs)" relative to the intake of a public drinking water supply. More

We live to fight another day as the 2015 Legislative Session Wraps Up
The 2015 Legislative Session ended late Saturday night with several major bills getting killed in the final hours. The majority of the bills that died in the final hours were bad bills as the climate this session was not very conducive to even getting good bills on the agenda. There were a few major bills that consumed the majority of the lobby team’s time this session being the Coal Jobs and Safety Act, Category A Protections for the Kanawha River, HB 2004 the Anti-Clean Power Plan bill, and SB423 the roll back of the tank bill. Of these bills Category A protections for the Kanawha River and the WVDHHR Source Water Protection Planning Rules were of the few bills we could actually encourage a yes vote on.More

Update on S.B. 423, “Amending the Aboveground Storage Tank Act”
As we told you last week, the Senate Judiciary Committee's committee substitute for S.B. 423, "Amending the Aboveground Storage Tank Act" passed the Senate on Sunday with only one dissenting vote. Shortly thereafter, we began to hear that some senators were under the impression that all parties to the "stakeholder" negotiations, including our contingent, had agreed to the committee substitute.More
