2 The Glenville Democrat/Pathfinder I]~emnber S, 197S ,, I m m O I I The following news release from Washington is very clear. The answer to our question is not: $14 Million in Job-Impact Aid Boosts Bicentennial Projects Washington, D.C.-Ninety-eight community Bicentennial projects will benefit from nearly $14 million in federal job-impact grant money, according to John W. Warner, Administrator of the American Revolution Bicentennial Administration (ARBA). (None are in West Virginia. Our addition.) The 98 projects were selected by the department of Commerce from a list of 466 Bicentennial activities submitted by the ARBA. The ARBA worked with State Bicentennial officials to compile the projects it suggested for consideration. Mr. Warner made the announcement after the Secretary of Commerce, Rogers C.B. Morton, authorized the transfer of the money to the ARBA on October 28, together with a hsting of the projects to be aided. The money must be obligated by December 31, since it is intended to have immediate impact on current unemployment. 96 projects are Bicentenmal projects sponsored by Native Ame Again, NOh APJ IN W 'T VIRGINIA!

I well realize that it is very easy to arm chair quarterback the legislature. I am sure I would do a much better iob representing my constituency, if there were not 133 other people to persuade. Thousands of pages of research and countless hours of labor went into the last special session. I would welcome the opportunity as always to discuss both sides of any issue with you or any other person I represent, When the special session ended, 72 bills died in the House Finance Committee. less than 10 had passed. Teachers pay was not the top priority, highways and bridges received several million dollars more. Priorities were in this order of expenditure Roads, Education and Health. As Chairman of the Finance Committee. l furnish facts, Figures and advice. It is comparable to one raising a family, you give guidance and pray for the best - sometimes the legislature takes this guidance, sometimes not, just as does a child. During the ten years I have served in state government, I have probably spent more long days and nights studying our tax base and the budgitary process than any member of the legislature. I am a member of the leadership and must assume any critism directed toward it, although l have debated for hours one single point in our Rules Committee and lost. However I believe in the system which our founding fathers devised over 200 years ago. It became the destiny of the legislative branch to be the element of government which is often criticized and very rarely praised, but even more often it is misunderstood. This experience of putting down the lawmakers of the world is not unique to West Virginia. Those who would establish laws to govern societies have long been berated and assailed throughout the whole of recorded history.
