On February 3rd, the West Virginia Senate Judiciary Committee will hear Senate Bill 96 to strengthen West Virginia’s preemption law. The Senate Government Organization Committee previously heard SB 96 on January 16th. Please contact members of the committee and ask them to SUPPORT Senate Bill 96.
Senate Bill 96 prevents municipalities from restricting a number of tools that law-abiding citizens carry with them every day. Preemption legislation is designed to stop municipalities from creating a patchwork of different laws throughout the state that may potentially turn a law-abiding citizen into a criminal for simply crossing a jurisdictional line.
Again, please contact members of the committee and ask them to SUPPORT Senate Bill 96.
