OHIO COUNTY, W.Va. (WTRF) — During this week’s House of Delegates session, District 4 Diana Winzenreid discussed three floor amendments.
The amendments concentrated on consumer protection, specifically data breaches and sharing data information.
According to Winzenreid, the Secretary of State is considering creating a digital wallet so people can have their licenses and certifications all in one place.
The idea is to make it easier for people to access their information.
Although all these proposals are still under evaluation, one of Winzenreid’s pieces of legislation has passed.
“So far this session I’ve passed one piece of legislation through the house to create an Alzheimer’s Task Force. It is so important that we look at the care we’re providing for every West Virginia citizen to make sure we are taking care of them and aligning with the nation and now international standards that WVU Medicine is setting across the globe. So, I’m very proud of that and the impact it will have.”
