On the issue of bar closing times in the Eastern Panhandle and the problems they create by encouraging over indulgent boozers from Maryland and Virginia to bring their rowdy and dangerous behavior to West Virginia, Kump believes that the most effective and straightforward solution would be to empower individual West Virginia counties to set their own rules and regulations regarding alcohol consumption, as is done in other States. He will be introducing legislation to do just that, as well as making these rules and regulations subject to voter referendums.
Other legislative bills being sponsored or cosponsored by Delegate Kump are:
HCR 51 & HCR 61 Our State & Citizen Rights (Rules Committee) Requests the Joint Committee on Government and Finance to establish a post session Interim Study on the impact of federal laws and regulations upon the sovereign rights of the State of West Virginia and our citizens, as protected by the Tenth Amendment to the United States Constitution.
HB 2594 Teaching Our American Heritage (Education) Would require schools to teach about the Declaration of Independence, our Constitution and Bill of Rights, and other relevant historical documents and events from the era of our Founding Fathers.
HB 2828 Protecting Vulnerable Children (Judiciary) Would make it a crime to solicit a child to enter a vehicle in order to commit an offense against that child.
HB 2871 Drivers' License Reform (Judiciary) Would remove the mandatory requirement for Mountaineer citizens to submit to the arcane and stifling regulations that make it so difficult to obtain new and renewed West Virginia driving licenses. This measure was passed in previous legislative session by the West Virginia Senate, but never approved by the House of Delegates.
HB 2882 Budget Reform (Finance) Would reduce West Virginia budget expenditures by one percent (1%) each year for ten (10) successive years.
HB 2884 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Reform (Judiciary) Would reform the West Virginia Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to remove loopholes and make it easier for West Virginia citizens to ask for and obtain information and accountability regarding what our West Virginia government agencies are doing.
