Three bills designed to tighten up state regulation of pipelines cleared the Agriculture, Chesapeake and Natural Resources Committee of the Virginia House of Delegates on February 5. The measures now head to the House floor and they must be acted upon before February 11 to be considered in the Senate.
A West Virginia House of Delegates resolution introduced on January 14 would invite Virginia counties or independent cities that are dissatisfied with prospective legislation in the Virginia General Assembly on gun control to leave Virginia and become part of West Virginia.

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.”
A resolution introduced in the West Virginia House of Delegates that would condemn citizen groups opposing the Atlantic Coast Pipeline has been strongly opposed by the West Virginia Rivers Coalition (WVRC), an ABRA member. House Resolution 11 condemns “assaults on the Atlantic Coast Pipeline” and urges “the groups spearheading these assaults to stop their attacks and delaying actions and in the process help pave the way for a cleaner and stronger energy future for West Virginia and for the entire nation.”
