Getting Ready for the Legislature

The West Virginia Legislature begins in earnest on February 8.  Last month and this month The Highlands Voice has had stories on issues that may arise.  Last month we had stories on nuisance law and methane leaks.  This month we had stories on siting for exempt wholesale generators of electricity (mostly wind turbines) (p. 13), and water quality standards (p. 8).

Should you want to keep up with (or even influence) what is going on at the Legislature, going here is a good place to start.  It has lists of Senators and Delegates, their offices, their phone numbers, members of committees, etc.  It has a map of the Capitol.

Once bills start getting introduced, you can go to  It has information on the status of bills, who voted which way, etc.
