    Senators Chafin, Cole, Stollings, Jenkins and Green offered the following resolution:

    Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 58--Requesting the Division of Highways to name a portion of County Route 8, also known as Beech Creek Road, beginning at the Beech Creek Community Park and ending at County Route 8/03, in Mingo County, West Virginia, the “Valentine ‘Wall’ Hatfield Road”.

    Whereas, Valentine “Wall” Hatfield settled his family in a log cabin in 1861 on Beech Creek Road. He married Jane Maynard, who was from a prominent family, and they had eleven children. However, Mr. Hatfield did not live to see his children become adults. His life was interrupted in the 1880s when he was sent to a Kentucky prison for a crime connected with an incident where three McCoy brothers were murdered in the aftermath of the killing of Ellison Hatfield; and

    Whereas, Mr. Hatfield was the eldest brother of Devil Anse Hatfield, a justice of the peace and a partner in Devil Anse’s timber business. Unlike the other Hatfields, he voluntarily surrendered to Frank Phillips. Mr. Hatfield was convicted of the murder of the McCoy brothers and was given a life sentence in the Kentucky prison. He died six months later of unknown causes. Mr. Hatfield’s body was buried in an unmarked grave, and its location remains unknown; and

    Whereas, Mr. Hatfield always maintained his innocence and tried to be the peacemaker among the Hatfields; therefore, be it

    Resolved by the Legislature of West Virginia:

    That the Division of Highways is hereby requested to name a portion of County Route 8, also known as Beech Creek Road, beginning at the Beech Creek Community Park and ending at County Route 8/03, in Mingo County, West Virginia, the “Valentine ‘Wall’ Hatfield Road”; and, be it

    Further Resolved, That the Division of Highways is hereby requested to have made and be placed signs at both ends of the roadway identifying the road as the “Valentine ‘Wall’ Hatfield Road”; 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 Mr. Hatfield’s only living grandchild, Irma Baisden.

    Which, under the rules, lies over one day.

    Senators Cann, Prezioso, Beach, Edgell, Plymale, Stollings, Unger and Green offered the following resolution:

    Whereas, Nick Cavallaro and Benjamin Portaro were Italian immigrants, cousins and citizens of Anmoore, West Virginia, and fought for their adopted country of the United States of America; and

    Whereas, It is fitting to recognize the service and sacrifice of cousins Nick Cavallaro and Benjamin Portaro by naming this bridge in their honor as an everlasting tribute to their memory; therefore, be it

    Resolved by the Legislature of West Virginia:

    That the Division of Highways is hereby requested to name bridge number 17-79-117.174, on Interstate 79, in Anmoore, Harrison County, West Virginia, heading south, the “U. S. Army PFC Nick A.

    Senators Prezioso, Edgell, Plymale, Stollings, Unger and Green offered the following resolution:

    Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 60--Requesting that the Division of Highways name a section of Marion County Route 1, Marion County, West Virginia, from mile post 4.54 to mile post 9.15, the “USAF Sergeant Jerome E. Kiger Memorial Road”.

    Whereas, Jerome Elwood Kiger was born in Mannington, Marion County, West Virginia, on December 26, 1921, the son of Jasper Newton Kiger and Mary Peal Kiger; and

    Whereas, Jerome Elwood Kiger was educated in the public schools of Marion County, West Virginia, was a 1939 graduate of Mannington High School, Mannington, West Virginia, worked for Westinghouse Electric Company and enlisted in the United States Army Air Corps on August 17, 1942; and

    Whereas, From August 17, 1942, through August 16, 1943, Jerome Elwood Kiger trained with Squadron B, Radio School, Army Air Corps, Salt Lake City, Utah; attended flight school; was classified as an AAF MOS 611 Aerial Gunner; and was deployed to serve in the European Theater as a member of the 579th Bomber Squadron, 392nd Bomber Group, Eighth Army Air Force and, through his distinguished service, attained the rank of Sergeant; and

    Whereas, On July 21, 1944, the Eighth Air Force launched nine hundred sixty bombers on air raids on key industrial targets in southern Germany, targeting German aircraft plants and numerous targets between the cities of Suttgart and Munich; and

    Whereas, Sergeant Jerome Elwood Kiger was the tail gunner on a B-24 Liberator in the air raids, headed toward the village of Oberpfaffenhofen, near Munich, when the aircraft came under heavy enemy fire; flak severely damaged the aircraft before it reached its target and it crashed southwest of Munich; and

    Whereas, Seven crewmen bailed out of the aircraft; one was killed when his parachute failed. The six crew members who successfully landed were captured by the Germans; their fellow crew members, Sergeants Jerome Elwood Kiger and Charles R. Marshall, were presumably in the aircraft when it crashed, and were declared Missing in Action by the United States War Department; and

    Whereas, During the following year, investigations and searches were conducted for the wreckage of the B-24 Liberator Bomber, and on July 22, 1945, the United States War Department officially declared Sergeant Jerome Elwood Kiger and his fellow airman, Sergeant Charles Marshall, as Killed in Action, even though neither their crash site nor their remains had been located, and in the interim years no further discovery was made of the official location of the crash site; and

    Whereas, On November 23, 2008, Mr. Markus Mooser, a German citizen, contacted Sergeant Kiger’s family, reporting that he had found a crash site in the Starnberg district of Bavaria, Germany, which he correlated with the B-24 Liberator airplane that crashed with Sergeants Kiger and Marshall on board, and based on this discovery, the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command (JPAC) investigated the site and determined that it was the official site of the B-24 airplane crash. Remains were discovered, and the identities of Sergeants Kiger and Marshall were confirmed; and

    Whereas, On Sunday, July 21, 2013, the sixty-ninth anniversary of Sergeant Kiger’s death, a procession of family, friends, members of the military and representatives of the government accompanied the remains of Sergeant Kiger to Mannington Memorial Park, Mannington, West Virginia, where he was interred between the graves of his father and mother, in a designated grave site prepared for him by his parents prior to their deaths; and

    Whereas, Sergeant Jerome Elwood Kiger made the supreme sacrifice for his country in a foreign land and brought honor to his family, the citizens of West Virginia and his country; therefore, be it

    Resolved by the Legislature of West Virginia:

    That the Legislature hereby requests the Division of Highways to name a section Marion County Route 1, Marion County, West Virginia, from mile post 4.54 to mile post 9.15, the “USAF Sergeant Jerome E. Kiger Memorial Road”; and, be it

    Further Resolved, That the Division of Highways is hereby requested to have made and be placed signs identifying the road as the “USAF Sergeant Jerome E. Kiger Memorial Road”; and, be it

    Senators Beach, Stollings, Fitzsimmons, Miller, McCabe, Wells, Edgell, Plymale, Cann, Unger, Yost, Prezioso, Kessler (Mr. President), Snyder, D. Hall, Jenkins, Green and Williams offered the following resolution:

    Senate Resolution No. 38--Designating February 26, 2014, as West Virginia Nurses Unity Day.

    Whereas, One in forty-three West Virginians is a nurse; and

    Whereas, Nurses make a significant contribution of time, energy, heart and care toward the healing of our residents who are ill and suffering; and

    Whereas, Nurses are powerful advocates for the health and well-being of all West Virginians, providing education, screening, nursing intervention, evaluation and research to improve the health of West Virginia residents throughout the life span from prebirth to the end of life; and

    Whereas, Nurses meet the health needs of West Virginians not only in hospitals and long-term care facilities, but conveniently in their homes, at school, at work, at church, in community health centers, on the phone and on the Internet; and

    Whereas, The Institute of Medicine recognizes nurses as key to solving our current rising cost of chronic illness through their expanding leadership as coordinators and collaborators of interdisciplinary health care teams; and

    Whereas, The expanding roles of advanced practice registered nurses as nurse anesthetists, nurse midwives and certified nurse practitioners in a variety of specialties provide improved cost-effective access to health services in our rural state; and

    Whereas, The American public has voted to acknowledge nurses as the most trusted professionals for twelve years; therefore, be it

    Resolved by the Senate:

    That the Senate hereby designates February 26, 2014, as West Virginia Nurses Unity Day; and, be it

    Further Resolved, That the Senate recognizes and applauds the outstanding contributions made by all of our West Virginia nurses to the health, welfare and safety of our state and all of its citizens; and, be it

    Further Resolved, That the Clerk is hereby directed to forward a copy of this resolution to the appropriate representatives of West Virginia Nurses Unity Day.

    At the request of Senator Miller, unanimous consent being granted, the resolution was taken up for immediate consideration, reference to a committee dispensed with, and adopted.

    Thereafter, at the request of Senator Beach, and by unanimous consent, the remarks by Senator Miller regarding the adoption of Senate Resolution No. 38 were ordered printed in the Appendix to the Journal.

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

    Upon expiration of the recess, the Senate reconvened and, at the request of Senator Unger, and by unanimous consent, returned to the fourth order of business.

    Senator Beach, from the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, submitted the following report, which was received:

    Your Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure has had under consideration

    Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 61 (originating in the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure)--Requesting the Joint Committee on Government and Finance to study the development, funding and construction of a statewide, fiber optic broadband infrastructure network, known as the broadband middle mile, to be purchased and owned by the state.

    Whereas, In building and improving the infrastructure of West Virginia, access to broadband services for all communities is vital; and

    Whereas, Access to the Internet and high-speed broadband services is expensive and sometimes nonexistent in many areas of the state, reducing the chances of communities to attract and retain businesses and high-paying jobs; and

    Whereas, It is essential to economic development and the viability of many communities that there be statewide access to high-speed, high-quality and inexpensive broadband services; and

    Whereas, The National Broadband Plan (NBP) announced by the FCC in March, 2010, visualizes a significantly enhanced commitment to community institutions as an element of the plans for promoting broadband availability; and

    Whereas, The plan states that every American community should have affordable access to at least 1 gigabit per second broadband service to anchor institutions such as schools, hospitals and government buildings; and

    Whereas, The middle-mile provision is a major issue in reducing the price of broadband Internet service to nonincumbent operators. Internet bandwidth is relatively inexpensive to purchase in bulk at the major Internet peering points; and

    Whereas, Middle-mile access, when bought from the incumbent operator, is often much more expensive, and typically forms the major expense of nonincumbent broadband ISPs and inhibits communities’ access to high-speed, high-quality and inexpensive broadband services; and

    Whereas, The alternative, building out of their own fiber networks, is capital intensive, and thus unavailable to most new operators; and

    Whereas, For this reason, many proposals for government broadband stimulus initiatives are directed at building out the middle mile; and

    Whereas, The State of West Virginia must work with the NBP to develop a plan for broadband middle-mile infrastructure development and to create a separate infrastructure fund for broadband middle-mile infrastructure projects; therefore, be it

    Resolved by the Legislature of West Virginia:

    That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance is hereby requested to study the development, funding and construction of a statewide, fiber optic broadband infrastructure network, known as the broadband middle mile, to be purchased and owned by the state; and, be it

    Further Resolved, That the West Virginia Infrastructure and Jobs Development Council develop a draft state-wide broadband middle-mile infrastructure plan, including a separate infrastructure fund for broadband middle mile infrastructure projects, and make recommendations on the status of the plan to the Joint Committee on Government and Finance; and, be it

    Further Resolved, That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance report to the regular session of the Legislature, 2015, on its findings, conclusions and recommendations together with drafts of any legislation necessary to effectuate its recommendations; 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.

    Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 62 (originating in the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure)--Requesting the Joint Committee on Government and Finance to study the naming by resolution of roads, bridges and other transportation structures in West Virginia.

    Whereas, The naming of roads, bridges, overpasses, intersections and other transportation structures in West Virginia is a practice frequently utilized by the West Virginia Legislature by concurrent resolution to recognize certain individuals or groups, particularly West Virginia military veterans, by naming such transportation structures in their honor; and

    Whereas, Each year during the 2012 and 2013 regular sessions of the West Virginia Legislature, approximately two hundred fifty concurrent resolutions were introduced, approximately half of which were House Concurrent Resolutions or Senate Concurrent Resolutions directing the Department of Transportation or the Division of Highways to make and place such naming signs; and

    Whereas, The trend of naming West Virginia transportation structures by resolution continues during this present legislative session; and

    Whereas, It is a worthy undertaking by the West Virginia Legislature to recognize and publicly memorialize those West Virginians who contributed so much to their communities and this state, many of whom made the ultimate sacrifice while defending our country; and

    Whereas, Each naming resolution requires numerous resources: Time to draft, consider, revise if necessary and vote on the proposal and, if adopted by both legislative chambers, costs to manufacture, install and maintain the new naming signs; and

    Whereas, No criteria are currently in place that provide guidance as to which West Virginians should be honored; and

    Whereas, Limitations and requirements as to the content and design of the naming signs do exist, including in West Virginia and federal law, by West Virginia Executive Order and in the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices; and

    Whereas, There are many important safety considerations to take into account when choosing proper names, including uniformity and conciseness of the name so as to not distract drivers and so that locations can easily be found in case of emergencies; and

    Whereas, It is important that appropriate naming conventions be outlined and criteria be established for the naming of West Virginia transportation structures so as to assure the proper use of limited resources and the safety of West Virginians; therefore, be it

    Resolved by the Legislature of West Virginia:

    That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance is hereby requested to study the naming by resolution of roads, bridges and other transportation structures in West Virginia; and, be it

    Further Resolved, That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance report to the regular session of the Legislature, 2015, on its findings, conclusions and recommendations together with drafts of any rules or legislation necessary to effectuate its recommendations, including drafts of naming criteria; 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.

    And,

    Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 63 (originating in the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure)--Requesting the Joint Committee on Government and Finance to study the necessity of certain tax discounts and credits provided to suppliers and permissive suppliers of motor vehicle fuels.

    Whereas, The ongoing economic and commercial development of the State of West Virginia is dependent upon a reliable and well-maintained transportation infrastructure; and

    Whereas, Maintenance of our transportation infrastructure is financed through collections into the State Road Fund; and

    Whereas, The rotation schedule for the repaving of our highways is lengthening into ever-greater intervals due to the necessary revenues for the State Road Fund not keeping pace with the maintenance needs of our transportation infrastructure; and

    Whereas, West Virginia law currently provides that a supplier or permissive supplier, as defined in article fourteen-c, chapter eleven of West Virginia Code, who timely files a return with payment due may deduct, from the amount of tax payable with the return, an administrative discount of one tenth of one percent of the amount of tax payable to this state, not to exceed $5,000 per month; and

    Whereas, West Virginia law currently also provides that a supplier or permissive supplier shall deduct three fourths of one percent of the tax due from the licensed distributor as a discount to that licensed distributor for sales from permissive suppliers or suppliers to licensed distributors; and

    Whereas, The ability to maintain our transportation infrastructure depends, in part, upon periodic review of our tax policies and revenue structures in order to fund the construction and maintenance of our transportation infrastructure while also reflecting sound business practices in the production and distribution of motor vehicle fuels; therefore, be it

    Resolved by the Legislature of West Virginia:

    That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance is hereby requested to study the necessity of certain tax discounts and credits provided to suppliers and permissive suppliers of motor vehicle fuels; and, be it

    Further Resolved, That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance study whether such discounts and credits, if any, should be continued as part of a sound revenue policy; and, be it

    Further Resolved, That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance report to the regular session of the Legislature, 2015, on its findings, conclusions and recommendations, together with drafts of any legislation necessary to effectuate its recommendations; 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.

    And reports the same back with the recommendation that they each be adopted; but with the further recommendation that they first be referred to the Committee on Rules.

                             Respectfully submitted,

                               Robert D. Beach,

                                 Chair.

    On motion of Senator Kirkendoll, the resolutions were referred to the Committee on Rules.

    Senator Snyder, from the Committee on Government Organization, submitted the following report, which was received:

    Your Committee on Government Organization has had under consideration

    Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 64 (originating in the Committee on Government Organization)--Requesting the Joint Committee on Government and Finance to study eliminating certain executive boards, councils, committees, panels, task forces, agencies and commissions that are unnecessary, outdated and extraneous.

    Whereas, Some executive boards, councils, committees, panels, task forces, agencies and commissions never had members appointed; and

    Whereas, Some executive boards, councils, committees, panels, task forces, agencies and commissions have met their statutory requirements and are now irrelevant; and

    Whereas, Some executive boards, councils, committees, panels, task forces, agencies and commissions are now outdated; and

    Whereas, Some executive boards, councils, committees, panels, task forces, agencies and commissions have not met in recent years; therefore, be it

    Resolved by the Legislature of West Virginia:

    That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance is hereby requested to study eliminating certain executive boards, councils, committees, panels, task forces, agencies and commissions that are unnecessary, outdated and extraneous; and, be it

    Further Resolved, That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance report to the regular session of the Legislature, 2015, on its findings, conclusions and recommendations, together with drafts of any legislation necessary to effectuate its recommendations; 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.

    And reports the same back with the recommendation that it be adopted; but with the further recommendation that it first be referred to the Committee on Rules.

                               Herb Snyder,

                                 Chair.

    Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 65 (originating in the Committee on Government Organization)--Requesting the Joint Committee on Government and Finance to study the overall organization of the Department of Health and Human Resources and determine if there is a more effective way that the department could be structured.

    Whereas, The Department of Health and Human Resources is extremely vast; and

    Whereas, The Department of Health and Human Resources is responsible for the Bureau for Medical Services, the Bureau for Behavioral Health and Health Facilities, the Bureau for Public Health, the Bureau for Children and Families and the Bureau for Child Support Enforcement; and

    Whereas, Due to the size of the Department of Health and Human Resources, it may be beneficial to create smaller departments so as to increase the overall efficiency and make the services offered by the department more accessible to the public; therefore, be it

    Resolved by the Legislature of West Virginia:

    That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance is hereby requested to study the overall organization of the Department of Health and Human Resources and determine if there is a more effective way that the department could be structured; and, be it

    Further Resolved, That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance report to the regular session of the Legislature, 2015, on its findings, conclusions and recommendations, together with drafts of any legislation necessary to effectuate its recommendations; 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.
