On March 2nd, the West Virginia House of Delegates voted 81-17 to pass Senate Bill 96 to strengthen West Virginia’s preemption law. It will now go to Governor Jim Justice for his signature. Please contact Gov. Justice and ask him to sign SB 96 into law.
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 that turn a law-abiding citizen into a criminal for simply crossing a jurisdictional line.
Again, please contact Gov. Justice and ask him to sign SB 96 into law.
