“This bill is a huge step in the right direction, but I want to emphasize that it’s just the beginning,” the governor said. (Quote from the Charleston Gazette. 4/13)
WVSSPA worked extremely hard in getting many parts of this bill that affected service personnel beat back. It is not a perfect bill by any means but through efforts with AFT-WV, we were able to ensure that many parts of this bill will not be detrimental to our members and at the same time be good for students.
It is evident by the Governor’s remarks in the Gazette article that this is just the beginning. WVSSPA has started to develop a plan that will ensure that we fight these battles to the fullest extent. The next 5-10 years will be a critical time at the Capitol and for our members.
