The House rejected Senate Bill 147 today. The bill would have created a pilot program for recovery residences located in Cabell County to study the uniqueness of recovery residences as they relate to landlord-tenant law and determine an equitable resolution when circumstances arise which bring about an unanticipated cessation of an individual’s participation in a recovery residence’s program. The bill failed with 43 in favor and 52 opposed.

The House is in recess until 2:30 p.m.

The Rules Committee will meet at 2:15 p.m. behind the Chamber.
