HB-2095 Threatens Local Health Regulations Including Clean Indoor Air


HB-2095 would give County Commissions throughout the state the authority to approve, modify or disapprove policies and regulations of the local boards of health. This legislation has the potential to rollback public health policies put into place by local boards of health including clean indoor air regulations.

Legislation similar to this has been introduced and defeated for several years in West Virginia and similar legislation, SB52, has also been introduced in the Senate this year.

Powerful special interests are lining up to support this bill in order to place profits ahead of public health.

This bill has been referenced to the House Health and Human Resources Committee and then to the House Government Organization Committee.

Please contact members of the House Health and Human Resources Committee as well as your Delegates and urge them to stand up for the health of West Virginians by OPPOSING HB-2095.
