It’s a new year, and the AARP West Virginia Capital Advocacy Team is ready to spring into action when the legislature convenes Jan. 10.

AARP staff and volunteers will meet with lawmakers throughout the session to discuss legislation that affects caregiving, financial security, broadband access, and funding for home and community-based services.
