Delegate Fleischauer was proud to be a sponsor of HB 2463, which removed forced sterilizations from WV state law in 2013. West Virginia, like most other states, had a law which provided a procedure to take away the right to become parents of citizens who were deemed mentally unfit. Forced sterilization laws are now considered crimes against humanity.
Responding to a local issue in which an employer had a hidden camera in a locker room, Delegate Fleischauer sponsored and passed HB 2985 in 1999. Our Code now bans electronic surveillance of employees in employee areas, such as locker and lunch rooms, restrooms, shower rooms, and employee lounges.
