WV E-Council Key Initiatives Bite the Dust
For 75 days- including for one week prior to and a week following the end of the recent 60 day regular session of the WV legislature- lobbyists for the WV Environmental Council (WVEC) walked the hallways of the capitol, attended uncounted legislative committee meetings, schemed with lobbyists from allied social justice organizations, encouraged citizens “back home” to contact legislators in support of environmental law sanity- all in an effort to recruit political support for WVEC’s 2019 legislative agenda.

Despite the way practically every West Virginia voter, regardless of their party affiliation, feels about the state of our politics and money's role in it, West Virginia politicians charged ahead with SB 622 — the bill no one asked for. More

What Do We Want? Democracy! When Do We Want It? Now!
But some members of the WV Legislature have other ideas. The House of Delegates is set to vote on a major campaign finance overhaul bill that would allow even more big money into a system that already favors the wealthy and special interests. More

Urgent: Call Your Senators to Oppose Tax Cut for Coal Industry

SB 163 fails to protect West Virginians with the best science
Late Friday, the House Judiciary Committee passed out the water quality standards rule (SB 163) without updates to human health protections. Delegate Barbara Fleischauer put forth a valiant effort to present and pass an amendment to include the updated protections, but it was voted down on a divided voice vote. That amendment was co-sponsored by Delegates Sammi Brown and Mike Pushkin – thank you to these clean water champions! More

Take Action on PPAs
Our lawmakers have a no-cost way to empower more West Virginians to benefit from affordable distributed energy. Current law forbids us from entering into Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) to buy energy from renewable or alternative energy resources. Legalizing these agreements will help West Virginia communities, families, businesses, and nonprofits. More
