2012 Eastern Panhandle Report #4

The Eastern Panhandle Legislative Caucus held a brief, truncated meeting this morning.

Participating were Delegates Larry D. Kump, John Overington, Walter Duke, Ruth Rowan, and Daryl Cowles.

The need for passage of Homestead Exemption improvements and other property tax credits for senior citizens were discussed. Included in these efforts are HB 2672, HB 4339, and HB 4369.

We still are waiting on the West Virginia State Rail Plan and how it will affect the Maryland Area Regional Commuter (MARC).

There has been no progress on HB 3256 (end times for bars serving alcoholic beverages).

SB 362 (Cacapon State park) still is being considered in the Senate.

HB 4412 would create another judicial circuit in the Eastern Panhandle.

Concerns were expressed about funding of roads and a representative from the West Virginia Department of Transportation will be invited to a future caucus meeting.
