We have officially reached the halfway point of the WV Legislative Session! In this week’s Round-Up, Lucia and Isabel break down current bills we oppose and support. Thank you for all of your calls and emails so far! Check out WVEC’s recent media interviews, and stay tuned for action alerts as the session gets busier in the coming weeks.
On Wednesday, February 7, advocates, including 300 students, came together for Black Policy Day at the state Capitol to discuss and educate lawmakers on critical policies impacting communities of color in our state. We were happy to talk with the many attendees, including high school and college students, who stopped by WVEC’s table to learn about environmental issues and show their support for renewable and solar energy. You can find coverage of Black Policy Day here from Mountain State Spotlight.
We look forward to seeing you at Environmental Day at the Capitol this Tuesday, February 13! With over 35 organizations tabling, we will welcome advocates, citizen lobbyists and students from all over the state to educate legislators on how bills they are considering would impact environmental protection in West Virginia.
