License Reciprocity Bills for Waterworks Make it to Crossover

SB 999 (Mason) and its companion bill, HB 1940 (Runion), would allow for waterworks employees licensed in other states to be issued the equivalent license in Virginia.  These bills would help localities recruit and retain these necessary public works employees as staffing issues continue at the local level.

As previously reported, VACo supports the passage of these bills and was delighted to see both pass their original chambers unanimously.  Since crossover, SB 999 has been referred to the House General Laws Committee while HB 1940 is awaiting referral in the Senate.  VACo appreciates Senator Mason and Delegate Runion for introducing this legislation and hopes to see the bills pass their new chamber of designation.  VACo will continue to support and report on SB 999 and HB 1940 as they move through the process.
