WV Legislative Update: Delegate Brent Boggs - Chairman of the House Committee on Finance - 09.29.14

image

I’m writing this week on Sunday evening from the Southern States Energy Board meeting in Mobile, Alabama.  As a member of the board, along with my good friends and colleagues, Senator Doug Facemire and Senator Art Kirkendoll, we’re here as representatives of the West Virginia Legislature.  Additionally, Governor Tomblin is in attendance as the incoming President of the Southern States Energy Board for 2015.

With his presiding over SSEB, we will be bringing the meeting to West Virginia next year, and with it, a perfect opportunity to highlight the increasing leadership role the Mountain State is taking in our national energy picture.  While we’ve had a definite shift in some areas from coal to natural gas, both remain critically important to our national security, improving energy independence and the opportunity to grow the export market for both commodities.  The severance taxes derived from both coal and gas remains vital to our counties, helping fund a wide range of public services.  Most of all, it’s all about jobs and the families those jobs support.

This annual meeting is much more than coal and natural gas.  It encompasses all sources of energy in each state, along with emerging technologies and new sources of energy.  Just as coal and Marcellus and Utica gas fields are important to WV, OH, and PA; likewise, states like Alabama and Mississippi have large deposits of oil sands that are yielding ever increasing amounts of crude oil.  States like South Carolina and Georgia are heavily dependent on nuclear energy.  I’m looking forward to a very informative meeting and the opportunity to share the information obtained.

After some time with family, it was back to the Capitol – railroad – home and points in between for meetings with constituents.  Jean and I enjoyed a great lunch at the Gilmer Count Senior Center last Tuesday and later a meeting with the Gilmer County chapter of WV Retired School Teachers and Employees at the Center.  I always enjoy the hospitality and enthusiasm in attending their meetings, sharing new legislative information and visiting.  Their continued care and concern for education is reflected in the large, enthusiastic turnout for the monthly meetings, as well as working on ways to assist the needs of retirees.  Thanks for having us over for the afternoon.  I’m also looking forward to meeting with the Braxton County chapter in early October.

Administrative budget hearing have begun, as agencies are coming before the Department of Revenue and the Governor’s staff to present their preliminary proposed budgets for next fiscal year that begins July 1, 2015.  While the Legislature does not have a direct role in these preliminary meetings, we are allowed to have staff attend and take notes.  This provides a valuable snapshot of the general direction the agencies are heading in their instructions by the Executive branch.  Moreover, it provides our Finance staff good information on which to plan a framework for putting together the next fiscal year’s budget.

It’s difficult to believe that October – my favorite month of the year – is already upon us.  Warm days; cool nights; windows and doors open; the grass grows slowly; the fall colors; hunting season; fishing weather; football and just a great time of bright, blue weather.  And I believe there is no better place to enjoy October than in beautiful central West Virginia.


Please send your inquiries to the Capitol Office at:  Building 1, Room 462-M, Charleston, WV 25305.  Or, call the Finance Committee office at 304.340.3230; or Jennifer McPherson at 304.340.3942; or, fax to 304.340.3388.  If you have an interest in any particular bill or issue, please let me know.  For those with Internet access, my e-mail address is: .

You may also obtain additional legislative information, including the copies of bills, conference reports, daily summaries, interim highlights, and leave me a message on the Legislature’s web site at www.legis.state.wv.us/.  When leaving a message, please remember to include your phone number with your inquiry and any details you can provide. Additional information, including agency links and the state government phone directory, may be found at www.wv.gov. Also, you may follow me on Facebook at “Brent Boggs”, Twitter at “@DelBrentBoggs” , as well as the WV Legislature’s Facebook page at “West Virginia Legislature” or on Twitter at twitter.com/wvlegislature.

Continue to remember our troops - at home and abroad - and keep them and their families in your thoughts and prayers.  Until next week – take care.
