In West Virginia, ALEC’s State Chairman Delegate Eric Householder co-sponsored HB 2609 to repeal the Alternative and Renewable Energy Portfolio Act. The bill was stuck in committee when the legislature adjourned in April 2013.

A different bill, HB 2564, would have completely stopped implementation of the RES until the United States stops importing coal. The bill was co-sponsored by an ALEC member, Delegate Ron Walters.

Former director of ALEC’s Energy, Environment and Agriculture (EEA) Task Force, Todd Wynn, mentioned RES repeal attempts in West Virginia in an interview with Greenwire.
