SENATE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION NO. 38

(By Senators Beach, Stollings and Plymale)

 

 

 

Requesting the Joint Committee on Government and Finance study the effectiveness and efficiency of the implementation of the federal Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP21) program in West Virginia.

    Whereas, MAP21 is a graduated licensing program which provides federal funds to states that implement certain stages and requirements for teenage drivers before they are able to obtain an unrestricted license; and

    Whereas, Motor vehicle crashes continue to be the number one killer of American teens; and

    Whereas, Graduated licensing programs, like MAP21, have been shown to reduce teen traffic accidents and fatalities in states which have implemented the programs; and

    Whereas, The West Virginia Legislature has already adopted a graduated licensing system for its teenage drivers; therefore, be it

    Resolved by the Legislature of West Virginia:

    That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance is hereby requested to study the effectiveness and efficiency of the implementation of the federal Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP21) program in West Virginia; and, be it

    Further Resolved, That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance report to the Legislature on the first day of the regular session, 2014, on its findings, conclusions and recommendations together with drafts of any legislation necessary to effectuate its recommendations in order to make certain that West Virginia's teenage drivers are being fully and adequately protected while they gain experience and skill; and, be it

    Further Resolved, That the expenses necessary to conduct this study, to prepare a report and to draft necessary legislation be paid from legislative appropriations to the Joint Committee on Government and Finance.
