I am proud of our West Virginia Spirit, and our tradition of family togetherness. But, as we mark this traditional season, celebrating the harvesting of bounty, we must remember that not all shelves and pantries are equally full. There are, however, many community pantries and faith-based programs that Come together to try to ensure that no child, no adult, no family lives any day without food on the table. These community efforts - and the dedicated volunteers that make them possible - so aptly reflect our West Virginia spirit and our desire to "Help thy Neighbor  spurring hope and friendship to make life better for all. What better way to celebrate our own good fortune than by passing a little of it on to others, by supporting local programs dedicated to keeping food on family tables. Entire communities, and we as individuals, can benefit from volunteering our time, sharing our talents, and donating goods and services to help those who are in need - not just now, but all year long. All across America during this Thanksgiving holiday, families will gather in their homes and around tables that will have missing place settings and empty seats, stark reminders of their loved ones - our men and women of the military - who are standing in harm's way far from home. Recently, I visited with representatives of the American Red Cross at their annual "Holiday Mail for Heroes  program. This program makes a difference to our veterans and servicq members - one letter at a time - in communities all around the world, i Once again, this annual event hts reminded, prtt it is tolsupport those who do so much for our great nation and I urge my fellow West Virginians to set aside some time this week to share their blessings through a letter to a friend or loved one stationed overseas. This Thanksgiving, let us say "thanks  and show our appreciation and support to current and past members of our military, all those in uniform - law enforcement, firefighters, and first responders - and to all the dedicated, special people, who choose to make a difference in the lives of others. Because of them, our families sleep sounder; our peace of mind is greater; our security is stronger; and our children's future is brighter. U.S. Rep.

IL The joint House-Senate panel passed the bill on a voice vote, with only Sen. Karen Facemyer, R- Jackson, asking to be recorded as opposing it. The fate of the bill remains unclear Tomblin says he still needs to be sure there's a consensus behind it and at least one industry lobbyist says his group has major concerns about the proposed language. Since a bill to more strictly regulate drilling in West Virginia's vast Marcellus Shale reserves died during the regular session in March, Delegate Tim Manchin and Sen. Doug Facemire have led monthly joint committee meetings trying to come up with an acceptable bill.

Specifically, 12-21-2012. Tues. Nov. 22, 2011 Hinton News - 3 LEGISLATIv' U PDATE . By Delegate Virginia Mahan Significant provisions of the bill would set new standards for gas well casings, increase permit fees to help add more state inspectors, establish a 625-foot buffer zone between wells and homes, require public notice of permit applications and force companies to disclose how many of the jobs created by the drilling boom go to West Virginians. Senator Karen Facemyer said the legislation goes too far, sends a message that West Virginia is anti- business and needs to be slowed down so lawmakers can look at it more carefully during next year's regular session. But Delegate Barbara Fleischauer, said further delays could put off the date for getting additional Department of Environ- mental Protection inspectors until sometime in 2013. Jacqueline proctor, communicat- ions director for Tomblin, said the governor and his staff still need to study the interim committee's bill "to determine what aspects of the proposed bill can be agreed upon and what changes are needed" before deciding on whether to call a special session. Don Garvin, lead lobbyist for the West Virginia Environmental Council, said that his organization is "guarded" in its support for the committee's bill. Garvin said citizen groups want to see the bill improved with the addition of a permitting system for withdrawing water from state streams, regulations governing how drillers conduct seismic tests at potential drills sites, and tougher requirements for disposal of drilling pit wastes. Corky DeMarco, lobbyist for the West Virginia Oil and Natural Gas Association, said his group remains strongly concerned about parts of the bill, especially the increase in permit fees that he said would "put nails in the coffin," as West Virginia drillers try to edge out other states .fora,shre of the,.atral gas market: .......   .. West Virginia business and political leaders have for several years been promoting a potential boom in Marcellus Shale gas drilling, saying it would provide a huge economic boost to the state. But environmental groups have warned about impacts, and the state Department of Environmental Protection has agreed it needs more staff and tougher rules to regulate new horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, techniques that involve much larger operations and more complex permits. Surface landowners from around the state have also told horror stories about having their property invaded and damaged by drilling operations. And new studies are questioning whether natural gas really has the greenhouse gas advantages over coal that have frequently been cited in the past. In other news, lawmakers will try to correct errors in a new law that improves insurance coverage for children for autism. House and Senate judiciary committee members endorsed a bill Wednesday for the 2012 legislative session to fix those mistakes. The new law eventually will require both public and private insurers to cover applied behavioral analysis. Experts say this treatment can greatly help with some of the neurological disorders that fall under the autism diagnosis. Legislative lawyers say the recently identified flaws are largely minor, but could make the law impossible to carry out. The law exempts individual and small employer policies. It also sets spending and age limits. Some of the errors make those limiting 'provisions unclear. Others reflect language that was supposed to be removed before the legislation's passage.
