My first vote as W.Va. senator will help my state's economically struggling residents (Sen. Carte Goodwin)

“I know my time in the Senate is limited, but I pledge to work hard, every day, making lives better for the people I represent. Too many people have been suffering while this bill has been held in limbo and I’m glad that I was able to play a part in pushing this legislation forward.”

The bill was successfully passed by a vote of 60-40 in the U.S. Senate.
