Byrd, Gover- nor Joe Manchin met with the senator&apos;s top aides and briefed them on the state's financial condition and pro- vided an update on state highway projects during a visit to the senator's office. Governor Manchin also spoke by telephone with Sen. Byrd, who is recuperating from an illness at his home near Washington. The governor traveled to Washing- ton with State Transportation Secre- tary Paul Mattox and State Highway Engineer Marvin Murphy. "Senator Byrd asked for me to bring him and his staff up to speed on our highway needs and other pressing is- sues with which he can help," Manchin said. "He wanted to know where we ended the fiscal year, what concerns we have and the priorities we see for West Virginians, kind of a mid-year State of the State. "I was very pleased to speak with Senator byrd and I'm happy to report that he is doing better and he's giving us direction and orders as he always does. The first thing he wanted to know was our status on finishing Corridor H." In addition to the meeting with Sena- tor Byrd's staff, the governor was in Washington to take his oath of office as a member of the James Madison Memorial Fellowship Foundation Board of Trustees. The prestigious James Madison Memorial Fellowship Foundation was established by Con- gress in 1986 for the purpose of im- proving teaching about the United States Constitution in secondary schools.
