YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST !!!!
Hey parents: Janet Ivey-Duensing is hosting daily zoom events at 10a ET to talk and . The event is on FB at https://www.facebook.com/events/1323492984511724/. See the instructions for getting on zoom.
Today, the Virginia Legislature passed HB1527, which provides employment protections for members of the Civil Air Patrol who are responding to local, state, or federal emergency services missions in a volunteer capacity. This bill passed the VA House of Delegates with a 100-0 backing and the Virginia Senate with a 40-0 backing. The bill now goes to the Governor for action.

Bill Summary:
"Leave for volunteer members of Civil Air Patrol. Requires state and private employers to allow officers or employees who are volunteer members of the Civil Air Patrol to take leaves of absence from their respective duties without loss of seniority, accrued leave, benefits, or efficiency rating on all days during which such officer or employee is (i) engaged in training for emergency missions with the Civil Air Patrol, not to exceed 10 workdays per federal fiscal year, or (ii) responding to an emergency mission as a Civil Air Patrol volunteer, not to exceed 30 workdays per federal fiscal year. The bill requires any officer or employee requesting leave to provide certification that the officer or employee has been authorized by the United States Air Force, the Governor, or a department, division, agency, or political subdivision of the state to respond to or train for an emergency mission and verification from the Civil Air Patrol of the emergency need of the officer's or employee's volunteer service. The bill allows employers to treat such leaves of absence as unpaid leave but prohibits employers from requiring an officer or employee to exhaust any other leave to which he is entitled prior to such leaves of absence."
