Marshall officials want greater share of gas funds to fix roads

March 22, 2014

Doesn't EVANS sound like an outsider complaining about a problem? As if he has no control or say in the situation. He's just an outsider like us. Sounds like a political figure who has sort of mastered the technique over the past 5 years.

troll, Not sure if taxes received would increase or not. I really don't think that giving the spenders more money is the answer, no matter the problem! I do know that WV is considering bonds in the billions for road maintenance.

dyingov, you said it was "likely" those companies buy their fuel outside of WV, and then you noted the higher-than-average WV fuel tax. Connecting those dots, it's logical to conclude that businesses and individuals would buy more fuel in WV, and could generate more fuel tax revenue for WV, if WV would lower those higher-than-average fuel tax rates. Of course tax-loving liberals would insist there's no way you can raise tax revenues by lowering tax rates. Libbies also think that you can spend your way out of debt and that paying unemployment benefits and giving away food stamps and welfare create jobs. LOL

troll, Not what I said! Just explaining what the gassers are likely doing. You ever see those diesel hauling tankers on the road? Diesel is 6.7 cents cheaper (taxes) per gallon in Ohio....

dyingov, so you're saying if WV lowered its fuel tax, companies and individuals would buy their fuel in WV instead of across the border, thereby raising the fuel tax revenue WV receives? But everybody knows you can't increase tax revenues by lowering tax rates. That's just right-wing crazy talk. LOL

Troll, Probably could compare gas/diesel gallons sold year to year. Most of WV road spending is generated from the gas/diesel tax. I doubt that you will find a large spike in WV. The gas industry likely buys diesel out of state and trucks it in! WV fuels tax is 10th highest in the US.

Think Casey could do some REAL reporting and find out how much the gas industry ALREADY pays every year to the state and federal governments, in taxes and fees? And find out what the government is spending those gas tax and fee dollars on instead of using it to fix roads? Naaa, Casey's too busy being an activist, not a reporter. LOL

Area roads are the worst I have ever seen!

Local roads at this point were MUCH better back when they were DIRT roads!

If you suffer damage as a result of a state maintained road you can file a claim at the following web site

***********legis.state.wv.us/joint/court/claim_form.pdf

Wrongful death suits for tens of millions will soon be the result of a total lack of road maintenance and these suits WILL bankrupt some counties and towns!

The gas industry bribes will all be wiped out with just ONE suit!

ANY politician or official that has accepted ANY money from this industry by LAW can't be involved in ANY way with votes or legislation that would benefit this industry!

That is a HUGE ethics violation as well as a conflict of interest!

Any who HAVE need to be removed from office and charged with bribery!

When all of the energy boom started and the drilling rigs started crushing the roads, some police started weighing trucks and fining them for being oh maybe 100,000 pounds overweight. As one solution the gas guys found that they could hire the police to escort their overweight loads and that kept them from being weighed but then some people started wondering about the legality of that and Governor Tanning Bed fixed it all by waving all weight restrictions on all roads so that the overweight rigs could get on the with the business of crushng the roads into dust. Since Gov TB said we are broke WE will have to pay for the roads to be fixed. There is no funding plan for the gasguys to pay for the damage they did. Odd isn't it? Some made millions, the rest of us had to pay for it. And Del Evans remarks are absurd. The time to mention the problem might have been while he was in session just last month, NOT NOW. Fire him next election he was just there to pump his teacher pension.

SENATE PRESIDENT KESSLER is from? Do the peeps recall the "slush" fund introduced and finally passed by SENATE PRESIDENT KESSLER, from ________ County? Will gas severance money be redistributed through-out WV because of Kesslers Legislation? Are you people as dumb as you sound?

Route 250 used to be such a great motorcycle road. But hey, which is more important, a 'Williams superload' or two and rampant shale gas development to profit millionaires like Aubrey, or a smooth road? You'd think people would accept being in the 'extraction zone' by now, take it like a man, and just buy heavy duty 4x4s with all the money shale gas has delivered to WV. Ooops, no money for road repairs in the extraction master plan? WWTD?? What would Trollslayer do???

I remember President Obama, as part of the "stimulus" package, that we were going to rebuild America's roads and bridges. Wonder what happened there? More false promises.
