FROM THE BMST
THANK YOU! Because of your phone calls and emails, we were able to defeat HB 2441. HB 2441 would have gutted the WV Jobs Act which ensures state-funded projects have a minimum of 75% local workers on their jobsite. Passage of this bill would have made it impossible to catch contractors who cheat by stealing jobs from local workers.
Thanks again for taking a stand for WV working families!
Be sure to check out the “News Items” tab for additional information about the 2019 WV Legislative Session.
Dan Poling, BMST
