During the three month pe- riod ending September 30, 1995. the Division of Forestry investigated 140 complaints on logging jobs throughout West Virginia. The foresters and rang- ers found 106 of the complaints to be valid. Division of Forestry Personnel issued 79 compliance orders and 32 suspension or- ders. A compliance order allows the operator to continue work while correcting the violation. A suspension ordm', issued in the case of a serious violation or when compliance order is not followed, shuts the operation down until corrective action is completed. Of the compliance and suspension orders issued, 23 were because there was mud in the stream or on the road and 15 due to treetops being left in streams. The balance were for "paper violations." The. paper violations consist of such prob- lems as not giving notification, not having a certified logger on the job or not having a timber license. It is estimated that it costs the typical 19gging company about $4,300 per day or $688,000 for five days. Although the division derives no pleasuri~ out of suspending logging Jobs, it has had the effect of making the loggers comply with the law. Overall the six districts report considerable improvement in harvesting timber in every area. There are still problem areas, but Increasingly the division is seeing an improvement in prac- tically every logger's attitude -- wanting to do the job right. U.S. Senator Robert C. Byrd, D-WV, recently received a "Safety Leader Award" in honor of his leadership resulting in Senate adoption of his "zero-tol- erance" amendment, which is aimed at cracking down on drunk driving by people under 21 years of age. The award, presented by Ad- vocates for Highway and Auto Safety, recognized Senator Byrd for his strong .leadership on the issue of zero tolerance during Senate floor debate on the Na- tional Highway System Designa- tion Act of 1995. Byrd won Sen- ate approval of his amendment requiring states to pass "zero- tolerance" laws. Such laws would make youths under 21 who drive wlth a blood-alcohol content as low as 0.02 percent subject to state-imposed drunk- driving penalties. States not in compliance with the provision will have five per- cent of their federal highway construction funds withheld in fiscal year 1998, and ten per- cent every year thereafter. Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety is a broad-based al- liance of consumer, safety, law enforcement and insurance or- ganizations working together to promote adoption of effective highway safety legislation and policies at national and state levels. The National Minimum Drinking Age Act of 1984 re- quired every state to make ille- gal the purchase or public pos- session of alcoholic beverages by those under 21. That Act also required any state that did not comply to lose a portion of its federal highway funds. Prior to enactment of that legislation, only 18 states had 21-year-old drinking-age laws. Today. all 50 states have passed laws making 21 the legal drinking age. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration credits the na- tional minimum drinking age with prevention of nearly 1,000 traffic deaths a year. The Byrd provision is intended to play a similar role in urging state to adopt zero-tolerance laws. Since its creation In 1990, the "Safety Leader Award" has been presented to three dozen political leaders in the states and in Congress who have shown exceptional leadership on highway safety issues.
