PAFT In Action

04/17/2017  PAFT Actions for West Virginia

The governor of West Virginia recently vetoed West Virginia Senate Bill 347, legislation to modernize WV's PA practices, after it was passed unanimously in both houses of the WV legislature. 

PAFT sent a letter to the governor asking him to reverse his veto within the 15-day period he has to take that action.  PAFT also sent a letter to the leaders of both WV houses asking them to include SB347 in a special session for the majority vote required to override if the governor doesn't reverse his veto.
