We are searching for solutions to help reduce the overdose death rate that continues to rise in West Virginia. This was an opportunity to hear about the impact this is having every day in our state from the people who see it firsthand. I look forward to bringing their ideas back to Washington.

DOE Releases Study On Ethane Storage Hub

This week Secretary Rick Perry announced the release of a new study by the Department of Energy detailing the potential for a petrochemical hub located in the Appalachian region. The reports reaffirmed what we have been saying for years- we need to capitalize on the resources we have in West Virginia and Appalachia, while using our natural gas liquids to attract manufacturing, investment, and jobs.

We thank Secretary Perry for his leadership and for working with us to highlight the potential and need for an ethane storage hub in Appalachia. Not only is it good for our region, this is good for America. West Virginia and surrounding states are poised to become a leader in petrochemicals and manufacturing, but we need the necessary infrastructure to make it work.

These grants are given to states, regions, and communities through need and the potential impact it could have on the area.

This is a much needed investment that will make West Virginia roadways more safe and efficient. By investing in infrastructure, we will be able to put people back to work and continue to help our booming economy.

McKinley Remembers Pearl Harbor

This week we remember devastating events at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, “A day which will live in infamy.” Each year fewer and fewer Americans are left who actually remember or were a part of Pearl Harbor. It is up to the rest of us to carry on the memory of the Americans killed there, and the attack that spurred America to action and changed history forever.
