West Virginia: Important Preemption Bill Moves to Senate Floor

On February 4th, the West Virginia Senate Judiciary Committee voted 16-1 to advance Senate Bill 96 to strengthen West Virginia’s preemption law. SB 96 will now move to the full Senate for further consideration. Please contact your state Senator and ask them to SUPPORT SB 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 your state Senator and ask them to SUPPORT Senate Bill 96.
