(By Senators Barnes and Tucker)


Recognizing the importance of Corridor H and those who have been working hard toward its completion.

    Whereas, Interstate 79 in West Virginia and Interstate 81 in Virginia are separated by 150 miles; and

    Whereas, These two highways are major conduits for interstate commerce; and

    Whereas, Portions of West Virginia through which Corridor H passes realize a significant benefit from interstate transactions in wood products, poultry production and energy resources; and

    Whereas, The magnitude of this economic impact is expected to grow as additional sections of Corridor H are completed; and

    Whereas, Providing greater access to corridors for interstate transportation is frequently cited as a prerequisite to additional job creation and economic development in West Virginia; and

    Whereas, Those businesses operating in the Appalachian Highland areas of West Virginia will realize a greater market share in the energy, agricultural, manufacturing and natural resources industries as a result of the greater access to international markets that will be provided once Corridor H is completed; therefore, be it

    Resolved by the Senate:

    That the Senate hereby recognizes the importance of Corridor H and those who have been working hard toward its completion; and, be it

    Further Resolved, That the Senate acknowledges the continued economic vitality that Corridor H brings to the State of West Virginia; and, be it

    Further Resolved, That the Clerk is hereby directed to forward a copy of this resolution to the appropriate representatives of Corridor H.
