Kathleen Stoll: Time to work together for diabetes bill

“Back in January, I had an op-ed published in the Gazette-Mail that described how West Virginia legislators of different political parties often work together and find common ground to advance good policy. Unlike that crew in Washington lately.

Yes, legislators often stridently disagree with each other, and the partisan heat is turned high these days. But I have seen West Virginia legislators civilly “agree to disagree” and move on to common ground.

In January, my example of common ground was House Bill 4252. Republicans and Democrats came together to advance a bill to help lower health care costs for insured West Virginians with diabetes.”
