Working on your behalf: Thursday’s travels include Clay, Greenbrier, Nicholas and Kanawha Counties 


Senator Manchin and his representatives continue traveling the state this week, hosting special mobile office hours and visiting community leaders to assist flood-related victims.

"Many West Virginians are still in need, and I urge those who are to call my office or talk with one of my representatives," Senator Manchin said. "To best serve West Virginians, I have deployed my staff to specific locations throughout the state, so that those in need of help can get it from my office directly. My staff can explain how to begin the FEMA process, get your needs to the appropriate authorities, and will try to assist you with anything you need. Tomorrow, I look forward to visiting with residents in Clay County and helping them in any way I can."

Senator Manchin’s representatives will have FEMA handouts and case materials to share with residents, and will also stop by to meet the most impacted communities. West Virginians will be connected to specialized caseworkers in the Senator’s office that can provide help.

Manchin secures promise of a vote on Miner’s Protection Act from Democratic Leadership and Finance Chair Orrin Hatch

Senator Manchin worked this week to secure a promise of a vote on the Miners Protection Act from Democratic Senate leadership and Senate Finance Chair Orrin Hatch. “I am glad we will be able to vote on the Miners Protection Act and I thank the entire Democratic Caucus for working to secure an immediate vote from Finance Chair, Orrin Hatch,” Senator Manchin said. “The guarantee that these miners received from President Truman deserves a vote before recess. By the end of this year, tens of thousands of miners will lose their health benefits - the health benefits they earned through a lifetime of hard work. Although I am happy we have secured a vote, we now must work to make this vital legislation law to make sure that our miners never receive those notices.”
