The following update does not attempt to identify all bills that may impact libraries. The focus is legislation that immediately references libraries. Inclusion on the list is not an indication of support by the West Virginia Library Commission or libraries at large. Some bills may have a negative effect on libraries and/or the agency. The reader should evaluate the impact of the legislation on their individual library.
Please notice that some of the Bills are “rollover” legislation from the previous General Session.
