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.
VACo spoke in support of SB 999 while both bills passed through their respective subcommittees unanimously. VACo appreciates Senator Mason and Delegate Runion for introducing this legislation and hopes to see the bills pass each chamber. VACo will continue to support and report on SB 999 and HB 1940 as they move through the process.
