(By Delegates Leach, Craig,

Hrutkay, Varner and Morgan)


[Introduced February 17, 2005 ; referred to the

Committee on Government Organization.]




A BILL to amend the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, by adding thereto a new article, designated §5B-1B-1 and §5B-1B-2, all relating to establishing a permanent statewide trail plan coordinator.

Be it enacted by the Legislature of West Virginia:

That the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, be amended by adding thereto a new article, designated §5B-1B-1 and §5B-1B-2, all to read as follows:

ARTICLE 1B. WEST VIRGINIA STATEWIDE TRAIL PLAN COORDINATOR.

§5B-1B-1. Legislative findings.

The Legislature finds that:
(a) The West Virginia trails coalition informally acts as the statewide trail plan coordinator, and has established a state trails plan;
(b) Since the state trails plan is, for the most part, a plan to increase coordination among existing entities and agencies, little money is needed to implement the plan;
(c) The state trails plan will have a positive impact on the economy of the State;
(d) The West Virginia trails coalition can only act as the statewide trail plan coordinator in a temporary capacity because its funding is uncertain; and
(e) A permanent statewide trail plan coordinator is needed to permanently direct implementation of the state trails plan.
§5B-1B-2. Designation of a statewide trail plan coordinator; duties.

The Nick J. Rahall Appalachian Transportation Institute shall be the permanent statewide trail plan coordinator. The statewide trail plan coordinator shall assume the duties of implementing the state trails plan, and acting as an advocate for the plan.



NOTE: The purpose of this bill is to establish a permanent statewide trail plan coordinator.

This article is new; therefore, strike-throughs and underscoring have been omitted.
