    The Senate proceeded to the sixth order of business.

    Senators Snyder, Beach, Foster, Unger, Laird, Stollings and Kessler (Mr. President) offered the following resolution:

    Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 53--Requesting the Joint Committee on Government and Finance study the problem of too many driver’s license suspensions resulting from failure to pay court fines.

    Whereas, The Division of Motor Vehicles reports that there are 80,000 to 90,000 drivers’ license suspensions and revocations per year. Of these, 10,000 are driving under the influence related, 7,000 are related to lack of insurance and 2,000 are related to points against the license; and

    Whereas, The remainder are from failure to timely pay fines. This harms job prospects and remains in the driver's permanent record. It would appear that the Division of Motor Vehicles time and expertise would be better spent by not being a de facto collection agency for the court system; therefore, be it

    Resolved by the Legislature of West Virginia:

    That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance is hereby requested to study the problem of too many driver’s license suspensions resulting from failure to pay court fines; and, be it

    Further Resolved, That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance report to the regular session of the Legislature, 2013, 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.

    Which, under the rules, lies over one day.

    Senators Plymale, Jenkins, Foster, Tucker, Yost, Kessler (Mr. President), Prezioso, Chafin, Stollings, Klempa, Laird and Unger offered the following resolution:

    Senate Resolution No. 45--Designating Feb. 28, 2012, as “Marshall University Day”.

    Whereas, The year 2012 marks the 175th anniversary of Marshall University, the oldest institution of higher education in West Virginia, founded in 1837 as Marshall Academy in honor of Chief Justice John Marshall; and

    Whereas, Marshall University is one of the state’s premier institutions of higher education, and educates more than 14,000 students at campuses in Huntington, Point Pleasant, South Charleston, Beckley, Logan and Gilbert; and

    Whereas, Marshall University offers degrees at the associate, baccalaureate, master’s and doctoral levels; and

    Whereas, A university-record 2,003 new freshmen enrolled at Marshall University in fall 2011; and

    Whereas, At this time of unprecedented growth, Marshall University has begun construction on more than $100 million in new capital projects; and

    Whereas, Marshall University has built a national reputation for research in biotechnology, forensics and medicine; and

    Whereas, Ten new high-demand degree majors or programs have recently been launched or are under development; and

    Whereas, With every dollar the state invests in Marshall University, the University generates nearly $20 spent in the West Virginia economy, resulting in an estimated economic output of $1.5 billion per year; and

    Whereas, Marshall University is creating new, high-value job opportunities through the Marshall Institute for Interdisciplinary Research as part of West Virginia’s “Bucks for Brains” initiative; and

    Whereas, The Robert C. Byrd Institute for Advanced Flexible Manufacturing serves all 55 state counties providing expertise to manufacturers across West Virginia; and

    Whereas, The Nick J. Rahall, II Appalachian Transportation Institute of Marshall University is setting national standards in transportation; and

    Whereas, Marshall University’s Health Sciences train hundreds of West Virginians to serve as doctors, nurses, therapists and health technicians each year; and

    Whereas, Marshall University graduates number nearly 82,000 across the globe; therefore, be it

    Resolved by the Senate:

    That the Senate hereby designates February 28, 2012, as “Marshall University Day”; and, be it

    Further Resolved, That the Senate hereby recognizes Marshall University for its tremendous contributions 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 Stephen J. Kopp, President of Marshall University.

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

    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. 54 (originating in the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure)--Requesting the Joint Committee on Government and Finance to study the need for alternative revenue mechanisms for the development and maintenance of state roads and highways and identify the most promising road usage fee collection implementation options to evaluate in a pilot project or projects.

    Whereas, An efficient and effective transportation system is critical for West Virginia's economy and quality of life; and

    Whereas, Continued efficiency and effectiveness depend on a stable and reliable source of revenue to fund the system's maintenance, operation, preservation and improvements; and

    Whereas, The motor vehicle fuel tax has been a fundamental means of paying for state and federal roads, and, until recently, these taxes have been an adequate and stable source of revenue; and

    Whereas, Since 1980, with gradual gains in average vehicle fuel economy, vehicle miles traveled have doubled while fuel consumption itself has increased by just half, and long-range projections for fuel consumption and vehicle miles traveled from the Energy Information Administration (EIA) suggest that this trend will continue; and

    Whereas, Changing conditions in the fuel market since the year 2000 have driven changes in consumers' tastes in the vehicle market, with a shift toward vehicles with superior fuel economy and vehicles that rely on alternative fuels; and

    Whereas, Because the average individual vehicle miles traveled is expected to grow faster than fuel consumption in the coming decades, alternative funding mechanisms based on alternative funding sources, such as vehicle miles traveled, for roads and highways should provide a more stable source of revenue; and

    Whereas, According to EIA projections, federal fuel tax revenue, assuming current per-gallon rates, should increase by about ten percent between 2015 and 2030, growing from $36 billion to $39 billion (2009 dollars); and

    Whereas, If, instead, fuel taxes were replaced with an alternative funding source, such as fees based on vehicle miles traveled, in 2015 at an initially revenue-neutral rate, receipts should increase by thirty-three percent over the same period, growing from $36 billion to $47 billion; and

    Whereas, Other states and the federal government face the same difficulty of stagnating fuel tax revenues; a number of other states have embarked on pilot projects and other efforts over the last decade to evaluate potential new systems for the assessment and collection of taxes or fees for the use of a transportation system; and such efforts have shown that new systems to assess a fee based on usage of state and local roads are indeed technologically feasible today; and

    Whereas, West Virginia should examine the governance structure and groundwork needed to adopt an alternative source of revenue collection for road development and maintenance that will supplement the current system of motor vehicle fuel taxation, including the need for a study, conducted by the Commissioner of Highways, to guide the first stages of the transition, focusing on determining the feasibility and optimal methods of implementation for a road user assessment; and

    Whereas, Such study should include research and review of relevant reports, data, and efforts in other states and at the federal level with regard to models of assessment and methods of transitioning to an alternative system of paying for West Virginia roads and highways and analyze the research to identify issues for policy decisions in West Virginia; and

    Whereas, The result of such study should include recommendations on the design for a pilot project or projects; and

    Whereas, The study, in arriving at its recommendations, may need to determine and apply criteria for identifying the most promising road usage fee collection implementation options to evaluate in a pilot project, identify uncertainties that would need to be resolved in order to develop a technically feasible and cost-effective system of road use fee collection, and propose legislation that would enable the conduct of a pilot program or programs; and

    Whereas, In order to assist in making recommendations, the Department of Highways may need to participate in studies and limited pilot projects to test technical feasibility that can be accomplished within existing resources; therefore, be it

    Resolved by the Legislature of West Virginia:

    That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance is hereby requested to study the need for alternative revenue mechanisms for the development and maintenance of state roads and highways and identify the most promising road usage fee collection implementation options to evaluate in a pilot project or projects; and, be it

    Further Resolved, That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance report to the regular session of the Legislature, 2013, 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,

    Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 55 (originating in the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure)--Requesting the Joint Committee on Government and Finance to study the need to modify the Public-Private Transportation Facilities Act.

    Whereas, In 2008, the West Virginia Legislature found and declared: (1) That there is a public need for timely acquisition or construction of and improvements to transportation facilities within the state that are compatible with state and local transportation plans; (2) that public need may not be wholly satisfied by existing ways in which transportation facilities are acquired, constructed or improved; (3) that authorizing private entities to acquire, construct or improve one or more transportation facilities may result in the availability of transportation facilities to the public in a more timely or less costly manner, thereby serving the public health, safety, convenience and welfare and the enhancement of the residential, agricultural, recreational, economic, commercial and industrial opportunities; (4) that providing a mechanism for the solicitation, receipt and consideration of proposals submitted by private entities for the purposes described in this section serves the public purpose of this article to the extent that the action facilitates the timely acquisition or construction of or improvement to a qualifying transportation facility or the continued operation of a qualifying transportation facility; and (5) that providing for the expansion and acceleration of transportation financing using innovative financing mechanisms, including, but not limited to, design-build contracting and financing arrangements, will add to the convenience of the public and allow public and private entities to have the greatest possible flexibility in contracting with each other for the provision of the public services which are the subject of the Public-Private Transportation Facilities Act; and

    Whereas, The West Virginia Legislature enacted the Public-Private Transportation Facilities Act in 2008; and

    Whereas, The Public-Private Transportation Facilities Act currently provides that the Division of Highways may not enter into any comprehensive agreements with a developer after June 30, 2013; and

    Whereas, It should be studied and examined whether it would be in the best interest of West Virginia if the Division of Highways could enter into comprehensive agreements with a developer after June 30, 2013; and

    Whereas, The Public-Private Transportation Facilities Act currently provides that the Division of Highways may not enter into a comprehensive agreement until the comprehensive agreement has been approved by the Legislature by the adoption of a concurrent resolution and, if approved by the Legislature, has also been approved by the Governor; and

    Whereas, It should be studied and examined whether it would be in the best interest of West Virginia if such required approval of comprehensive agreements by the Legislature and the Governor as mandated by the Public-Private Transportation Facilities Act be stricken and instead replaced with a more expedited approval process, such as through approval by the Secretary of the Department of Transportation; therefore, be it

    Resolved by the Legislature of West Virginia:

    That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance is hereby requested to study the need to modify the Public-Private Transportation Facilities Act; and, be it

    Further Resolved, That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance report to the regular session of the Legislature, 2013, 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.
