I thank Senator Rockefeller for leading this field hearing to make sure horrific explosions like the one in Sissonville never happen again. After hearing from a variety of experts, I am confident that our natural gas industry will do everything in their power to make sure we can transfer our resources safely and responsibly. It is also important to recognize our first responders who rushed to the scene that day to make sure the devastation did not spread. Once again, our first responders displayed their courage and dedication in responding to such an alarming incident.

The first vote I took in the Senate was for paycheck fairness, and I will continue to fight for paycheck fairness because people should earn the same pay for the same work. Period. The fact that working women in West Virginia are earning 70 cents to every dollar a man makes just defies common sense. It shouldn't matter whether you're a woman or a man - you should be treated fairly no matter what.

Manchin's Message from the Hill to the Mountains

Standing Up for What is Fair and Right

Whether as Governor or Senator, I have always stood up for what is fair and right for West Virginia and this country. That's why in the 113th Congress I am strongly supporting the Paycheck Fairness Act - legislation that would help close the pay gap between women and men working equivalent jobs.

Sponsors of the bill, Senator Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.) and Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.), reintroduced the Paycheck Fairness Act in Congress last month, just days before the four-year anniversary of the passage of the landmark Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act. That law made it easier for women to challenge paycheck discrimination in court, and its anniversary indicates it is past time that we correct this unfairness to make sure women are paid what they deserve.
