We  wanted to send a BIG THANK YOU to those who have made calls to your legislative representatives..... THEY ARE HEARING US and we need to continue to be aware of the next steps of this process...

I went to the capital this morning and have been in communication with Mary Hager (WVOTA legislative chair) daily. I met with various delegates and senators and the secretaries have said, "oh yes, we have been getting calls" SO AGAIN A BIG THANK YOU AND KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!!!...

At this point I have been notified that Thursday (tomorrow) there is supposed to be a reading of the SB 273 and I am told that OT will be written into the Bill and included as an alternative treatment for opioid reduction... but I believe this is one of the more important first steps of many steps..... so we will need to still be watching and paying attention.

This is not over yet!!!

Please keep up the good work and please know YOU are a voice and YOU are being HEARD.
