VIDEO: Capito Highlights West Virginia Wins in Minibus Funding Legislation

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) today spoke on the Senate floor to highlight the numerous West Virginia priorities funded in the minibus appropriations legislation the Senate is considering this week. Explaining the resources included in the bill, Senator Capito said:
“Since my first days in the Senate, I’ve been committed to doing all that I can to advance the issues that help the Mountain State—including improving our economy and making room for growth and development; fighting burdensome and overreaching environmental regulations that have crippled our coal industry; improving broadband access in our rural communities and across the state; and fighting the opioid epidemic that has disproportionately devastated my state of West Virginia and so many families in our state but across the country. The bills under consideration today include resources and directions to address each of these priorities and many others.”
