Mollohan, D-W.Va., voted Thursday to protect the federal law that guarantees over- time pay for U.S. workers. "In West Virginia and all across the country, workers put in extra hours to get the job done for their employers, and they rightfully receive time-and- a-half pay for their overtime efforts," Mollohan said. "However, millions of employces would lose this crucial right under a rule change that has been proposed by the Bush Administration. The cuts in pay would be devastating to many of these workers, who count on the extra money to feed, clothe and house their families," he said. The Bush proposal, announced in March by the U.S. Labor Department, would change the criteria that is used to determine which employees qualify for overtime. More than eight million workers now receiving overtime would lose their extra pay under the proposal, according to analysis by the Economic Policy Institute. "A broad range of employees-in- cluding many nurses, Dlice officers, firefi ghters, surveyors, office and sup- port workers, ~retaries and para- medics-are considered likely to lose their eligibility for overtime if the Labor Department moves forward with this proposal," Mollohan said. An amendment offered Thursday on the House floor would have pre- vented the Labor Department trom spending money to is,ue or enforce regulations that take overtime pay away from anyone who is currently eligible for it. The amendment would not have blocked the part of the Bush proposal that would make some addi- tional workers eligible {or ovemme. Mollohan supported the amend- ment, which was offered as the House considered the Labor Department's 2004 spending bill. The amendment failed by a vote of 210 to 213.

Thursday, July 31, 2003 -- The II Glenville Democrat/Pathfinder -- Page 13 Governor Wise's 'welcome home' to Under the new tax act, Congress increased the child credit from $600 to $1,000 per eligible child, begin- ning in 2003. What's more, the child tax credit will be provided to indi- viduals in advance--meaning that you don't have to wait to file your 2003 tax return to obtain the credit. The IRS will calculate the advance payment based upon information shown on your 2002 tax return. The majority of the tax cre, dit payments will be mailed in three scheduled mailings: July 25, August !, and Au- gust 8. There are no forms to fill out or calls to make. CPAs point out that taxpayers who qualify for the advance payment but do not receive a check may claim the full child tax credit of up to $1,000 per q ualifying child when they file their 2~3 tax return.

"Today, wc wclcome back a young citizen and soldier. She left here -- one of many newly enlisted in the military -- pursuing both her duty and her dream. She returns a re- nowned international figure and a symbol of the quiet courage and com- mitment of all our armed forces. Like our armed forces, she may consider her duties routine; we know they are heroic. "Jessica, on behalf of all the people of our great state of West Virginia, I welcome you home. The entire state has had a ycltow ribbon around its heart. We cclcbrated your rescue and the release of the others who were captured; we mourn and remember the loss of your comrades. "In Palestine. after your rescue, a church put up a sign: "God is still in the business of making miracles, one of His miracles has come home to the mountains u~day. "Through all of this, we have come to know your family -- your parents, Greg and Dee; your sister, Brandi; and your brother Greg. They have shown the kind of people who make up West Virginia. Their determina- tion, their faith and their patriotism have inspired the world." The avorag penmn's left hand does 56*/. of the typing.
