Del. Kump has good ideas for West Virginians

To the editor:

West Virginia Del. Larry D. Kump is one of the few very bright light bulbs in the state Legislature. He gets it.

In particular, his suggestion that some of the tax revenue from gas severance be set aside to pay for roads is particularly appropriate, given the damage done to the roads by trucks associated with gas, oil, mineral and timber harvesting in W.Va.

His idea about returning some of the revenue to the people of the state (as Alaska has done for years) is also worthy of mention, because it is a guaranteed safeguard against the government spending that amount of money wastefully and puts the choices on how to spend it back in the hands of the people.
