More Good Governance Initiatives

 In addition to the other legislative proposals which I am cosponsoring and endorsing, here are three more of my initiatives for good governance:
HB 2481 "None of the Above"
 This gives voters the option to choose "None of the Above" on election day. If you aren't happy with the candidates on the ballot, but still want to vote and also want to let the candidates know that you don't like any of them, just vote for "None of the Above".
HB2497 "Non-Partisan Elections"
 Tired of the "same old-same old" from our mainstream political parties? This legislative proposal requires elections in West Virginia to be non-partisan and not based on political party affiliation (the same as our elections for School Boards).
HJR 15 "Term Limits"
 This West Virginia Constitutional Amendment sets a twelve year limit of serving in office for all West Virginia Delegates and Senators, so that serving in the Legislature remains a citizen duty and not a means for a legislative career.

Further, I also am co-sponsoring HB 2866 "The Patriot Protection Act", to protect citizens' rights to fly the American flag and prohibit landlords and homeowners associations from denying this patriotic right.
Also, the West Virginia House of Delegates Constitutional Revision Committee, on which I serve, currently is in the process of wading through numerous proposals to increase the Homestead Exemption to property taxes for senior citizens.

More to come...
