Majority Whip Mike Caputo

Statement from House Majority Whip Mike Caputo regarding Senator Robert C. Byrd’s passing

“Senator Byrd’s service to West Virginia and the country was invaluable in countless respects, but the coal miners of West Virginia in particular owe him a huge debt of gratitude. As a legislator, I have great admiration for his fight to ensure that mine safety regulations were both thorough and properly enforced. As UMWA District 31 International Vice President and a former coal miner, I deeply appreciate his concern for and dedication to miners both in West Virginia and throughout the country.

“Senator Byrd was the best friend the coal miner has ever had.”
