He can also to re-route SB 611 to a different committee where it will receive a fair hearing before it’s too late.

SB 611 will allow all West Virginians to choose renewable energy so we can:

  • Lower our electric bills,
  • Avoid utility rate hikes, and
  • Stabilize our monthly budgets.

SB 611 takes care of the little guy – our homeowners, small businesses, and tax-exempt institutions like schools and churches. This bill will create good new jobs for West Virginia workers. It will encourage homegrown entrepreneurship. It will attract employers to locate and invest in our state. And it will do all this without raising rates or hiking taxes.
