March 19, 2002 Hinton News- 3o Leolslative Ns00tes By Delegate Mary R Compton The 2002 Regular Session of the 75th. Legislature has reached its much awaited climax, anticipated by legislators and citizens alike. This has been a very daunting legislative session, with the significant underlying themes of educational development and economic revival. As of Monday, March 11th., the total number of bills introduced in the Legislature was 2,052 and the number of bills passed was 327. Of this number, eight were administrative rules, 30 were Sunset Legislation and 18 were Supplemental Appropriations. According to the Legislative Duplicating Division, approximately 2 million sheets of paper were used to print 250 copies of each bill introduced. Today, I would like to present you with some of the bills that have completed legislative action. I believe these bills rightfully made their way through this complicated legislative process. House Bill 2374 will prohibit all elementary, secondary and post- secondary schools in the state from publicly displaying the social security numbers of students. The bill does not restrict the use of social security numbers for internal registration and recJrd-keeping purposes of the school. This bill will restrict the use of student sociali security numbers for posting or public listing of grades, on class rosters or other lists provided to teachers, on student identiciation cards, in student directories or any other similar listings. House Bill 4017 will create a new Sales Tax Holiday for purchases of back-to-school clothing and school supplies by consumers during a three-day period in August 2002. Among the exemptions are articles of clothing or footwear and school 'supplies stich '&i ibns'/pdiiffs, binders, notebooks, reference books, book bags, lunch boxes, computers, computer accessories and calculators. These items are exempt from taxation if the sales price of the article or school supply is less than $100, the price of a computer or computer accessory is less than $600 ! enrollment, a student would be and provided that the sale takes i obligated to the attendance rules set place during a period be'g at forth for other students and could 12:01 a. m. on th first Friday in August 2002 and ending at 12:00 a. m. on the following Snnday.-This exemption does not apply to any special clothing or footwear designed for athletic activity or protective use and is not usually worn except for during athletic activity; accessories, including jewelry, handbags, luggage, umbrellas, wallets, watches and other similar items; the rental of clothing, footwear or school supplies; furniture; and tangible personal property for use in a trade or business. Senate Bill 247 will increase the salaries for teachers and school service personnel. Teachers are to receive an averageincrease of $1,465. This figure is $265 more than that proposed by Governor Wise in his State-of-the-State on January 9, 2002. All teachers will get $804 and an incremental pay of $36 for each year of service with an additional increment pay. School service personnel will also receive an average of $870, $71 across the beard and an additional $1 a month for each year of service up to 40 years. In addition to the increase in teachers' salaries, Senate Bill 247 calls for the requirement that all counties have pre-kindergarten programs for four-year-olds. According to the House Education Committee Chair, Delegate Jerry Mezzatesta who explained this bill to the full House, four-year-olds would not be required to enroll in not withdraw from the program. In relation to higher education, a bill was passed to ensure no stacking would occur with state financial aid, thus allowing for more students in the state to receive aid. The bill prohibits students from double- dipping  financial aid such as the PROMISE scholarship and the Higher Education Grant. The bill relates only to state-funded aid and includes a provision allowing for students whose family income is less than $30,000 per year to receive more than one form of state-funded aid. Senate Bill 701 authorizes the Department of Natural Resources Director to develop and implement a program to preserve the historical integrity of the town of Cass. This' bill originated because of many factors, some of which include the Legislature's finding that preserving heritage is essential to promoting the education, prosperity and general welfare of West Virginians, that the tewnfCass, in Pocahontas County, is one of the few remaining historical logging towns in the United States; and that the town of Cass is richly endowed with numerous historic buildings, structures and sites, which are representative of the historical and cultural heritage of the state. With the hope to further enhance West Virginian's' economic growth, the Legislature passed House Bill 4005.
