This week, I voted for HB 4062, the Pharmacy Audit Integrity Act, which passed the House of Delegates. It requires that, beginning on 1 January 2021, all prescription drug discounts given by drug companies to a health insurance carrier shall either be used to reduce the individual's health insurance premium or passed on directly to the individual when the prescription is purchased. HB 4062 now is pending consideration by the West Virginia State Senate.
My HB 2497, "Whistle-Blower" law, has passed the House Judiciary Committee. HB 2497 protects state and local government employees who "blow the whistle" on wrong doing or waste. It now is pending passage by the West Virginia House of Delegates.
My HB 4351 would require the West Virginia Legislature to set a leadership example, by providing random drug testing for legislators. HB 4351 has been referred to the West Virginia House of Delegates Judiciary committee.
Meanwhile, I continue to be a staunch supporter of our 2nd Amendments right to bear arms, personal property rights, individual liberty, and pro-life family values.

May God bless you all real good!
