Mar 20, 2020 by AFP

CHARLESTON, WV – Americans for Prosperity-West Virginia (AFP-WV) today commended Governor Justice and Attorney General Morrisey for issuing an executive order that suspends various regulations, helping expand access to health care.

The grassroots group sent Governor Justice a letter earlier this week that presented policy recommendations the governor could take to help mitigate some of the effects from COVID-19.

Americans for Prosperity-West Virginia (AFP-WV) State Director Jason Huffman issued the following statement:

“Governor Justice and Attorney General Morrisey acted decisively to cut through the red tape and help West Virginians access the critical health care services they need. Removing barriers to health care innovations better positions our state’s health care system to address the effects of COVID-19.

“We thank the governor and the attorney general for prioritizing West Virginians’ health and safety and enacting these policies that will make a difference during this public health emergency. We also thank state senate leaders for their contributions in helping to drive action forward. We look forward to continuing to work with policymakers to remove barriers for West Virginians and enact policies that address this crisis.”
