Quotes

"Our community colleges, like Mountwest, are expanding access to higher education, which is vital to ensuring a growing economy and well trained workforce. Mountwest's growing partnership with the Rahall Transportation Institute is truly building jobs through transportation" said Rahall
"On Labor Day, we celebrate the contributions of American workers who earn their bread by the sweat of their brow. We remember the West Virginians who fought and died to ensure fairer wages and safer, healthier working conditions for all Americans. Honoring their sacrifices, it is our charge to ensure that the American Dream remains accessible to every citizen who is willing to work for it."
...we recognize that electric costs can be difficult for some of our customers to pay," said Charles Patton, Appalachian Power president and COO. "Installing CFLs is an easy way to help lower energy use. CFLs use about 75 percent less energy than standard incandescent bulbs and can save about $50 or more in electricity costs over the course of a bulb's lifetime. That's significant when dollars are tight, and it's why we are proud to be able to help our customers to control usage in their homes."
...new ground with this partnership agreement," said Congressman Rahall, top Democrat of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee. "It is most welcome news for the Coalfields Expressway, but it is equally promising news for other highway projects as well. Innovative financing is a true asset in attracting every available federal and other funding dollar to build our highways and the jobs that come with them. Richard Browning's leadership in the Legislature and Governor Tomblin's broad vision have been central in this progress and a bold fully funded federal transportation bill will keep it moving forward."
