This past week ended the opportunity to introduce new legislative proposals (bills) in the West Virginia State Legislature and there now only are about three weeks left in the 2020 session.
Meanwhile, one of the bills I sponsored, HB 4670 (Juvenile Justice Restoration) passed the House Judiciary Committee. HB 4670 would give the court or the prosecuting attorney the option to use a restorative justice process, wherein juvenile offenders would be given more accountability and responsibility to repair the harm dome to the victim and the community. HB 4670 now is pending consideration by the House of Delegates.
My HB 2497, "Whistle-Blower" Protection Law, has passed the Senate Judiciary Committee , and now is pending passage in the West Virginia State Senate.
My HB 4639, to change mandatory West Virginia mandatory vehicle inspections from every year to only once in three years was amended by the House of Delegates Technology and Infrastructure Committee to once every two years. HB 4639 now is pending further consideration by the House of Delegates Finance Committee.
Meanwhile, I continue to be a staunch supporter of our 2nd Amendment right to bear arms, personal property rights, individual liberty, and pro-life family values.
