WVDP Chairwoman Belinda Biafore released the following statement on the passage of House Bill 206:
“West Virginians did not want this bill, special interest groups did. Teachers and school service personnel were willing to give up a pay raise to stop the wasteful spending of taxpayer dollars and to save their students from being left behind. Republicans pushed this bill on behalf of special interest groups for profit, and our students will suffer.
“The Republican Majority has proven that they will always side with special interests and not the people of West Virginia. West Virginians are taking notice, and in 2020 we will vote them out.”
