The lead article in the March 7 ABRA Update reported that the Rules Committee of the West Virginia House of Delegates had approved a resolution (House Resolution 11) condemning “assaults on the Atlantic Coast Pipeline and other urgently needed energy infrastructure projects.” Later that night, after Update had been emailed, the House of Delegates overwhelmingly approved House Resolution 11 by an 80-17 vote (3 members did not vote). All Republican members who voted supported the measure, plus 21 of the 40 Democrats in the House. The text of the bill as introduced is available here. An identical resolution was introduced in the West Virginia Senate in mid-February, Senate Resolution 42, but no action on the resolution was taken before the West Virginia General Assembly adjourned on March 9.
