The Municipal Home Rule Program makes the Municipal Home Rule pilot permanent. This allows municipalities more flexibility and local control by giving them broad authority over what they can legislate. The ACLU-WV followed this bill because of potential anti-LGBTQ+ provisions. Specifically, provisions that would prohibit municipalities from passing non-discrimination ordinances and invalidate existing non-discrimination ordinances. Ultimately, the bill passed cleanly.
