After dominating most of the 2014 regular legislative session, Senate Bill 373, which became commonly known as the "water bill," passed the full Legislature just after 10 p.m. March 8.

Members of the House of Delegates agreed with changes the Senate made to the bill to quickly and quietly pass it along to Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin.

Tomblin had indicated earlier in the evening he was happy the full Legislature could work together to pass a bill that came out of the Jan. 9 chemical leak in Charleston.
