On Monday March 1, the House will be voting on HJR 2, a dangerous, unnecessary amendment to our state consitution. This bill would cut loose future impeachment proceedings of the WV Legislature from all constitutional restraint.
This constitutional amendment would make it so that no state court could intervene to protect the right to a fair hearing of a public official facing impeachment, no matter how frivolous the charge or constitutionally flawed the process.
In the hands of a partisan majority, this new power could be abused to oust political opponents without cause, thereby eroding existing checks and balances between the three branches of government and undercutting public trust in the political process.
The House Judiciary Committee recommended the resolution be adopted. The House will be reading it for third time this Monday. Voting will follow.

Vote NO on HJR 2
This bill is unnecesary and dangerous. The House already has sole authority over impeachment procedings.
