    Your Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure has had under consideration

    Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 18, Requesting DOH name portion of State Route 20 in Wyoming County "David and Janet Lee Memorial Highway".

    And reports back a committee substitute for same as follows:

    Com. Sub. for Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 18 (originating in the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure)--Requesting the Division of Highways to name a stretch of highway in Wyoming County, West Virginia, on State Route 20, just across the Wyoming County line approximately one mile to just past Ikes Fork Freewill Baptist Church, the “David and Janet Lee Memorial Highway”.

    Whereas, David E. Lee, Sr., was born in Ikes Fork, West Virginia, May 16, 1927, the youngest son of John and Millie Lee. He served in the United States Air Force and was a proud veteran of World War II and the Korean War. He married his beloved wife Janet December 9, 1949, and they shared fifty-three wonderful years together until her death in 2004. After his military service, David utilized the GI Bill and graduated from Marshall College in 1959. After working for the IRS in Chicago, Illinois, David and Janet moved back to West Virginia in 1963 where they remained until their deaths. David began a thirty-year teaching career in 1963 at Coal Mountain School, Huff Consolidated and Baileysville High School where he touched the lives of the many students he taught and coached. He served two terms on the Wyoming County Board of Education after his retirement, continuing to be an advocate for the students and public education. Affectionately known as “Poppy”, David cherished his four sons, David Jr., Dale, Dean and Dante, and his grandchildren, JL, Tiffany, Chelsea, Aaron, Danielle, Jessica, Brittany, Drew and Kendra and his great grandchildren, John David, Katie, Isabella and Colton. David was active in his church and community and was always willing to help his neighbors. Janet Riffe Lee was born September 13, 1933, the daughter of John and Cara Riffe. She owned a restaurant and flower shop until she became a cook in the Wyoming County school system and at the Wyoming County Jail. Known for her great cooking, she served the students with a smile and a special touch of believing in them. She devoted her life to David and her boys as well as her grandchildren. She was active in her church and community and was a compassionate shoulder for those in need. They say “behind every great man is an even greater woman pushing him”. That was never more true than for David and Janet. She was truly the strong force that kept the family together. David passed away on April 16, 2012; and

    Whereas, It is fitting to honor David and Janet Lee by naming a stretch of highway in Wyoming County, West Virginia, on State Route 20, just across the Wyoming County line approximately one mile to just past Ikes Fork Freewill Baptist Church, for David and Janet Lee; therefore, be it

    Resolved by the Legislature of West Virginia:

    That the Legislature hereby requests the Division of Highways to name a stretch of highway in Wyoming County, West Virginia, on State Route 20, just across the Wyoming County line approximately one mile to just past Ikes Fork Freewill Baptist Church, the “David and Janet Lee Memorial Highway”; and, be it

    Further Resolved, That the Division of Highways is hereby requested to have made and be placed signs identifying the stretch of highway as the “David and Janet Lee Memorial Highway”; and, be it

    Further Resolved, That the Clerk of the Senate is hereby directed to forward a copy of this resolution to the Secretary of the Department of Transportation and to the surviving children and relatives of David and Janet Lee.

    With the recommendation that the committee substitute be adopted.

                             Respectfully submitted,

                               Robert D. Beach,

                                 Chair.

    At the request of Senator Beach, unanimous consent being granted, the resolution (Com. Sub. for S. C. R. No. 18) contained in the preceding report from the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure was taken up for immediate consideration.

    Thereafter, at the request of Senator Unger, and by unanimous consent, the remarks by Senator Chafin regarding the adoption of Committee Substitute for Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 18 were ordered printed in the Appendix to the Journal.

    On motion of Senator Unger, the Senate recessed for one minute.

    Senate Resolution No. 50--Calling upon Patriot Coal to live up to their obligations to active and retired miners, their families and widows.

    Whereas, The United Mine Workers of America has secured health care and pensions for retired coal miners and widows through decades of collective bargaining; and

    Whereas, The gains made for working miners as a result of collective bargaining are now being threatened through the use of the bankruptcy proceedings; and

    Whereas, Peabody's spin off of Patriot Coal jeopardizes the current collective bargaining agreement for active UMWA members at Patriot operations; and

    Whereas, Peabody's spin off of Patriot Coal jeopardizes retiree pensions and health care via Patriot's bankruptcy action; and

    Whereas, Actions taken by Peabody and Arch to shed themselves of promised health and retirement benefits through corporate schemes could also hurt coal retiree's pensions and health care; and

    Whereas, The loss of promised health care and retirement benefits jeopardizes the health and security of UMWA active, laid off and retired members and their dependants; and

    Whereas, The loss of promised health care and retirement benefits, if not addressed, could push many local communities into a financial crisis; and

    Whereas, All coalfield communities have a significant interest in fighting to maintain retiree pensions and health care for our citizens; therefore, be it

    Resolved by the Senate:

    That the Senate hereby calls upon Patriot Coal to live up to their obligations to active and retired miners, their families and widows; and, be it

    Further Resolved, That the West Virginia Senate pledges the United Mine Workers of America and its membership to join in the fight to protect and maintain mine workers' pensions and health care from assaults by these and other coal operators; and, be it

    Further Resolved, That the West Virginia Senate calls upon Peabody, Arch and Patriot to live up to their obligations to provide coal miners' health care and retirement security; and, be it

    Further Resolved, That the West Virginia Senate calls upon others to assist in preventing these corporations from stripping from active, laid off and retired coal miners their contractually promised lifetime health care benefits.
