Charleston Gazette – Last month, West Virginia Chamber of Commerce President Steve Roberts penned an opinion column praising the Legislature for taking “a step back from the unknown consequences” of a piece of legislation related to clean water that he said “was not ready for legislative approval.” Read op-ed.
“West Virginians have seen all too clearly that regulatory mistakes can have major and lasting consequences,” Roberts stated.
This month, Roberts took to the radio airwaves, voicing adamant support for immediate approval of another piece of legislation, a massive and controversial education bill being pushed by the Senate Republican leadership, while he threw out another of his countless swipes at our state’s public education system. And if there’s one thing for certain about the education legislation Senate President Mitch Carmichael, R-Jackson, is trying to ram down his colleagues’ throats, with its many changes to West Virginia’s educational system, is it creates uncertainty.
