" We are advocating for the best possible result for our members before the U.S. Bankruptcy Court ... But this fight won’t end when the judge rules. We’ve got additional litigation underway in West Virginia; we’ve got a bill in Congress which will hold the original employers of these workers accountable; and we will continue to follow these companies and these corporate executives wherever they go. "
" Hurricane Sandy called on our response teams requiring a lot of financial support upfront, and continues to require resources as our communities work to recover ... West Virginia’s National Guard, first responders, and Emergency Operations Center are top-notch, and they did all they could to keep our communities safe and functioning during the storm. This funding helps alleviate the costs associated with that response, reimbursing the state for all they did to protect West Virginians. "
