Gov reappoints UMW official to review panel
CHARLESTON (AP) -- Gov. Cecil Underwood has reappointed a retired United Mine Workers official to a panel created to develop "technical data" on mine safety issues.
Fred Tucker's newest term on the two-member Coal Mine Health and Safety Technical Review Committee expires June 30, 2003, the governor's office said in a news release.
In the 12 months beginning July 1, 1998, Tucker collected $24,280 in payments and expenses from the review committee, plus $35,316 in fees and expenses related to his seat on the Bureau of Employment Programs Performance Review Council. He repaid $2,880 he billed the performance council.
The other seat on the Technical Review Committee is held by West Virginia Coal Association Vice President Chris Hamilton, who billed $725 for attending five meetings during the time Tucker billed $24,280.
