At the last minute, this morning's State House meeting of the Eastern Panhandle legislators was unexpectedly aborted, due to the preemption of our meeting room by another group. Since there were no other meeting rooms available for us this morning, the meeting will be rescheduled, at a date and time yet to be determined.
The Reverend J. Charles Riecks, National Association of Railroad Passengers, was to be the guest speaker for this meeting. He had intended to answer questions about SB 103 and HB 2879, in regard to the proposed participation by West Virginia in the Maryland Area Regional Commuter (MARC) train system, which currently serves the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia.
SB 103 and HB 2879 are the legislative bills that address this issue. Both bills have been passed by the Transportation Committees in the House of Delegates and State Senate. Both bills currently are awaiting further committee hearings before the House of Delegates and State Senate Finance Committees.
