Welcome to CCAWV

Our mission is to "maintain a statewide agency for the purpose of promoting the interest and general welfare of local county government through a variety of communication tools; to represent county government before the West Virginia Legislature, administrative agencies, and the federal government; to educate the public about the value and need for county programs and services; and to facilitate the exchange of problems, ideas and solutions among county officials."


Another controversial bill this session was SB 347, the concealed carry permit bill. Ultimately vetoed by Governor Tomblin, the bill sought to remove the need for gun owners to have a concealed carry permit. Proponents cited the second amendment of the US Constitution, while opponents of the bill (including the Sheriff’s Association) questioned the bill’s effect on officer and public safety.

A third bill of notable importance, SB 234, was passed in the final days of the session, and among other things, would give the State’s 9 largest PSDs the ability to propose rates and have them approved by the county commission, rather than going before the Public Service Commission. That bill becomes effective June 12, 2015. We will be sending more details on these bills and others that have county implications, once all are signed into law by the Governor. Watch for your complete summary soon.
