The 2023 Legislative session is over, and what an exciting and dramatic ride it was! Over the past 60 days, we faced intense moments and challenges, but with your support, we pushed positive bills and defeated harmful ones. In this edition, our lobby team, Lucia Valentine, Maria Russo, and Jillian Welsh, provide a final update on the bills we followed.

Thank you to our members for calling and emailing lawmakers on so many essential pieces of legislation. Your support and dedication were instrumental in our success! We also thank Don Alexander, our web guy, who made sure this newsletter went out each Friday and turned on a dime to get action alerts out with little to no notice. We are lucky to have him on our team.

For more insights and updates, please check out the legislative wrap-up newsletters from our partners, including WV Citizen Action Group, WV Rivers Coalition, and WV Highlands Conservancy.

Our next newsletter comes out in May. In the meantime, follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to stay informed! 

Our work is year-round! As we transition into our year-round presence at interims and other meetings across the state, please consider donating and renewing your membership to continue to support our work. 

If you have questions or comments, please contact us at Thank you again for your support! Let’s celebrate our victories together and keep pushing for positive change.
