Legislative Notes By Delegate Mary P. Compton The final days of the 1991 Legis. lative session were quite long and laborious. Many issues having long- term impacts on the state have been debated during the past weeks. A great deal of our time has been de- voted to health care issues, medical education and congressional redis- tricting. According to statistics provided by the U. S. Census Bureau, W. Va. will lose one congressional seat, from four to three, because era significant decline in population. As such, the Legislature is charged with the re- sponsibility of realigning these dis- tricts o follow closely the Constitution's =one man, one vote r standard. The House passed a measure which reportedly splits the state into three horizontal districts, each con- taining significantly porportional cities The plan also combines the Eastern and Northern panhandles into one district. In this case, Con- gressman Mollohan and Staggers #ould share the district for the 1992 primary election. The Senate plan essentially com- bines the Eastern panhandle and counties bordering Vs. into a single district, with the north central coun- ties and the Northern panhandle forming a district, and southern counties along the Oh. and Ky. bor- ders"rounding out the third. Under this plan, Congressman Rahal] and Staggers would be sharing a spot on the primary ballot. The Legislature must occur on a sinle plan prior to the commence- ment of the filing period for the pri- mary election in 1992. In line with the global =greening  trend, W. Va. lawmakers prepared compromise measures designed to protest the state's natural resources while continuing to promote eco- nomic enhancement strategies. A bill passed by the Legislature and pending the signature of the GOv. will ban commercial medical waste incinerators from being con- structed in W. Vs. However, the measure does allow hospitals and dispose of their own medical wastes. Additionally, the Division of Health has been given expanded responsibilities regarding the regulations and licensing of medical wastes, whole those haul- ingtherefuso will beoperatingunder guidelines established by the Public Service Commission. As always, I will continue to keep you updated on the events of the W. Vs. Legislature.

March 12, 1991 Hinton News - 3 IN THE LIBRARY To all of those who wrote letters to your representatives in the W. Vs. legislature on behalf of the Library - give yourselves a pat on the back! Governor Caperton announced to the 1000 library supporters who attended the annual Library Appreciation Dinner in Charleston Feb. 25, that the money which had been cut from that part of the State budget allocated to libraries had been restored. That means that for the coming year we will receive approximately what we received last year. (We are as yet unsure how our population loss will effect our appropriation). I was told by several ofour representatives that they had received many cards, letters and phone calls from library sup- porters urging them to raise the library appropriation.and I am sure that THIS input from you helped to insure this increase in support to our libraries! Thank you for writing and thanks to our legislators for looking out for W. Va. libraries. Now we noed to concentrate our efforts on our U. S. Representatives. The national budget proposed by President Bush for 1991 - 92 contains BIG cuts for libraries. Unless the Congress can restore these funds we may be forced to cut as much as $9,000 from our budget next year! Congratulations and thanks are also due to those talented and generous people who helped make the Friends of the Library's Musicale ( Sun. the 24th) so wonderful. More than seventy folks came to enjoy the music which was beautiful despite the fact that the piano in the Memorial Building is old and rickity! Afterwards we enjoyed punch and cookies supplied by our always willing Friends. We also enjoyed counting the proceeds which amounted to $300 to add to our "Inchf' fund. "Inchy  is now only $200 from his goal of $16,000 - a goal I am sure we will reach with the proceeds from the CHARITY BALL which is scheduled for Apr. 6 at the Moose Club in Hinton with the Concord Commanders suppling their own special music. Tickets which are available in the Library are $10/person. When you come in to pick up yours you may want to check out some of our beautiful new books. Among those which arrived last week were the following best seller types: The Old Contemotibles by that marvelous mystery writer Martha Grimes. Battle_roun d. the fourth in W. E.B. Griffin's saga about the Marine Corps. MaJc Hour. Susan Isaacs' newest mystery andCold Fire." a novel of unequaled wonder, mystery and terror" by Dean Koontz. We are also pleased to have a copy of The Lees of Virginia; Seven (?nerations of an American Fam}ly given to us in memory of Mr. and Mrs. W. T.
