Kevin Patrick sends word from Alan Shook who yesterday said that things were not looking so good for
getting this measure into committee.
“You guys DID IT! “It’s down in bill drafting–I just asked about it and they haven’t finished it yet. It will definitely be introduced” — Alex Shook
This is a great example of just how important and effective communicating with our representatives, especially on a state level, can be. I have seen this effect personally-Your state representatives many times are operating with little guidance from their constituents at large and this leaves them open to influence by any number of other sources that do not operate in the interests of the people.
Kudos West Virginia!
