Welcome to our Week 2 Legislative Update! Our hard-working lobbyists have compiled a summary of bills we are following in our Weekly Round-up below. 

Thank you to everyone who attended last night’s Helping Hour with Robin Godfrey, Paul Epstein and Kayla Jackson. If you missed it, our very own Lucia Valentine performed as well!

We appreciate all your calls to legislators, and more action alerts will be coming your way as the session progresses.

Please consider a donation to support the WVEC during this critical time. You can donate online at our website – thank you in advance!
