SENATE RESOLUTION 77

(By Senators Palumbo, Plymale, Jeffries, Beach, Hardesty, Stollings, Hamilton, Takubo, and Swope)

[Introduced March 9, 2019]

 

Urging the President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, to direct the Federal Emergency Management Administration to complete the work necessary to replace Clendenin Elementary and Herbert Hoover High School.

Whereas, On June 23, 2016, floods ravaged communities in West Virginia, destroying schools, homes, and infrastructure; and

Whereas, The federal government declared a state of emergency for West Virginia counties affected by those floods, qualifying those counties for emergency funds; and

Whereas, The Federal Emergency Management Administration must complete an Environmental Assessment before the school district can move forward in purchasing property and building schools replacing those damaged; and

Whereas, Nearly three years later, the rebuilding of Clendenin Elementary and Herbert Hoover High School has yet to commence, and the opening of the new schools lacks a definite timetable; and

Whereas, The students of Clendenin Elementary and Herbert Hoover High School have learned in temporary classrooms for the 2017, 2018, and 2019 school years; and

Whereas, Disaster recovery is not complete until community institutions have been rebuilt; and

Whereas, West Virginia has no more precious resource than its children; and

Whereas, Every child in West Virginia deserves to learn in a safe and well-resourced building; therefore, be it

Resolved by the Senate:

That the Senate hereby urges the President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, to direct the Federal Emergency Management Administration to complete the work necessary to replace Clendenin Elementary and Herbert Hoover High School; and, be it

Further Resolved, That the Senate asks the Honorable Donald J. Trump, President of the United States, to direct the Federal Emergency Management Administration to do its duty by helping West Virginia communities rebuild the schools affected by the 2016 floods; and, be it

Further Resolved, That the Clerk is hereby directed to forward a copy of this resolution to the Honorable Donald J. Trump, President of the United States of America; to the Honorable Joe Manchin III, United States Senator; to the Honorable Shelley Moore Capito, United States Senator; and to the Honorable Brock T. Long, Administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Administration.
