Page 2A -- The Glenville Democrat -- Thursday, February 12, 2009 Economic Stimulus Package Advances Congressman Alan B. Mollohan said that the House Appropriations Committee approved an economic [ answersStimulus PresidentPackage lateBarackYesterdaYobama,sthat inaugural call for "action bold and swift.., not only to create new jobs, but to lay a new foundation for growth." Mollohan, a senior member of the Appropriations Committee, said that the American Recovery and Rein- vestment Act would pump a total of $825 billion into the economy - the $550 billion in new spending approved by last night's 35-22 committee vote, plus an additional $275 billion in tax CUTS. "This legislation would meet our immediate goal of injecting money into a deteriorating economy, slow- ing job loss today and creating new jobs tomorrow," Mollohan said. "Equally important is how it would meet that goal. First, it would begin to reverse years of neglect that have allowed our academic and scientific capabilities to fall behind and our physical infrastructure to fall into dis- repair. Second, it would help states weather the downturn by helping fund Medicaid, law enforcement, and other critical needs. Finally, our bill would SUNFIRE TANNING AND SALON, 18 E.

C00ork and 00rers, ,znce 00affs Off By Brandy Burkhammer, Staff Re- porter Sunfire Tanning and Salon offi- cially celebrated their one year anm- versary on January 14. 2009. Though the business has been through some hard umes in the past year. such as losing most of their inventory to the flood last June. none of it was enough to keep this business down. The owners were fortunate enough to have insurance, and their supplies were replaced, allowing the business to keep running and provid- ing the Glenville community with their tanning and salon services. When Sunfire Tanning and Salon opened in January 2008, they offered four tanning beds and one employee to provide hair and nail services. Now. Sunfire Tanning and Salon has ex- panded to six tanning beds. including one stand up bed. two cosmotologists. and two licensed massage therapists. Sunfire Tanning and Salon's new cosmotologists are Carrie Wildman. who has been with Sunfire since the provide desperately needed support for laid-off workers, their families, and other casualties of the recession." The package includes $30 billion for highway and bridge improve- ments, $9.5 billion for drinking water and sewer projects, $41 billion to up- grade K-12 schools, $24 billion to modernize health information tech- nology and improve preventative care, $16 billion to repair public housing, $6 billion to weatherize the homes of lower-income families, and $6 billion to expand wireless and broadband internet access in rural areas. "President Obama reminded us on Tuesday that 'everywhere we look, there is work to be done,'" Mollohan added. "This is something that West Virginians understand all too well. We are prepared to undertake that work - to build sewer lines in our remote areas, to finish highway projects connecting our cities, to pro- tect our river communities from floods, and to repair aging schools throughout our state. This vote brings that work one critical step closer." Mollohan, who chairs the Com- merce, Justice, and Science Appro- priations Subcommittee, noted that the package includes $4 billion for state and local law enforcement. "The Byrne Justice Assistance grants and the COPS program have been ex- tremely helpful to our rural police and sheriff's departments," Mollohan said. "The FBI just released a report showing violent crime on the increase in small towns across the United States. This money will save lives and protect our families." Finally, the legislation would pro- vide immediate assistance to workers and families who have been most harmed by the economic downturn. It includes $43 billion for unemploy- ment benefits and job training, $39 billion to help those who have lost their jobs maintain healthcare cover- age, and $20 billion to increase food stamp benefits. Another important provision expands on legislation Mollohan authored two years ago to provide meals to at-risk teens in quali- fied after-school programs. Mollohan' s 2007 language authorized the program in West Virginia; today's legislation would expand it nation- ally. The legislation must be passed by the full House and Senate before be- ing sent to the President for his signa- ture. Rockefeller Gains Medicaid Relief for WV Senator Jay Rockefeller has an- nounced that he successfully fought to include state fscal relief in the Senate Finance Committee's eco- nomic recovery legislation. As a re- sult of Rockefeller's efforts, the Fi- nance plan contains $87 billion in Medicaid relief- including $464 mil- lion for West Virginia - to help sus- tain Medicaid programs at a time when states might otherwise be forced to make deep cuts. "Medicaid is a critical safety net for nearly 400,000 West Virginians- it is the economic foundation of our health care infrastructure," Rockefeller said. "States are grap- pling with tough budget choices as this national economic crisis hits home. By giving states additional Medicaid support, we hope to prevent cuts to this essential source of health care coverage." "With news of job losses coming every day, more and more people are retyitgon Medicaid and CHIP to i,pro;v'ide,, healthcare, l:or their fami-. lies," Rockefeller said. "We need to safeguard these vital programs by helping states weather this storm. I am confident that the President will sign my CHIP reauthorization bill into law next week and then follow with economic recovery, including Medicaid help for states."
