We've im- proved the health care system, passed historic safety measures and taken steps to improve the fi- nancial stability of our state, com- munities and families. Access to affordable health care and insurance is a top priority for West Virginia families. As costs rise, many employers are forced to cut benefits. We've made great progress in recent years: while our state once had one of the highest rates of unin- sured children in the nation; the CHIP program has helped us become a na- tional leader. Unfortunately, far too many adults in West Virginia still lack insurance. Two pieces of legislation I proposed, la: which the Legislature passed, will address this problem. The High Risk Pool will allow indi- viduals who cannot buy insurance in the private market, such as those with pre-existing conditions, to purchase affordable coverage. Additionally, new legislation will provide access to insurance for those who work in small businesses and cannot access cover- age through their employer. After fighting for all-terrain vehicle safety legislation for over two years, I am pleased that the Legislature en- acted West Virginia's first rules gov- erning the use of these machines. The bill I signed will require that children wear protective helmets at all times and restricts the use of ATVs on paved roads. Importantly, it also gives local governments the authority to regulate ATV use in their communities. Our roads will also be safer, thanks to the long-awaited passage of the .08 DUIstandard. For far too long, failure to enact this standard cost us federal highway dollars and lives. Today, thanks to the efforts of many dedicated people, our highways are safer. I also applaud the Legislature for taking action on my agenda to put money into the pockets of West Vir- ginians. Again this August, p~ents will take advantage of the Sales Tax Holiday, saving money on clothes,. school supplies and computers. We will reduce the burden of insurance premiums by implementing a Fraud Unit within the Insurance Commis- sion, and we will reward those brave West Virginians who have served their nation in the Middle East and else- where when the voters approve my plan to award a bonus to combat veter- ans. We have much more to do to ensure access to jobs, education and health care and to restore the state's fiscal stability. Together, however, we have built a foundation for success in West Virginia in the years to come. |m • May 11 Primary Election Results (Partial !

Governor Randy Maxwell wants to stress that over $70,000 of renova- tions were made to the building in preparing it for the Moose's occu- pancy. In addition, the Lodge has opened an adjoining restaurant for Moose members from anywhere and their guests. He says that to be an ultimate success, the Lodge will have to continue to have the strong support of its members. "We just need more members to visit the Lodge and to utilize our first-rate facilities more often on a weekly basis, if we are to survive," he explains. The restaurant's .serving hours are 5-10 p.m. Tues.-Sat. and it is a family= style restaurant, not being in the same section of the building as the Lodge's tavern. As a result, Moose members and their guests can bring their fatal: lies to eat in the restaurant section -.L without seeing or being in a bar. Als0, the restaurant has a new stove which will allow for better and faster service to the members and their guests in the future. Finally, new members are always welcome.
