HOUSE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION NO. 77

(By Delegate Caputo)




Requesting the Joint Committee on Government and Finance to study compensating state troopers for off-duty time when required to be on standby to be called back to work.

Whereas, There are areas of the state with limited staffs of law-enforcement officers to respond to emergencies. As a result, off-duty state troopers in these areas are restricted in their plans while off-duty because they are all too often called on and become responsible for answering the calls for these various emergencies; and
Whereas, There should be a method of compensating these troopers for responding to emergency calls during their off-duty times; therefore, be it
Resolved by the Legislature of West Virginia:
That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance is hereby requested to study compensating state troopers for off-duty time when required to be on standby to be called back to work; and, be it
Further Resolved, That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance report to the regular session of the Legislature, 2010, on its findings, conclusions and recommendations, together with drafts of any legislation necessary to effectuate its recommendations; and, be it
Further Resolved, That the expenses necessary to conduct this study, to prepare a report and to draft necessary legislation be paid from legislative appropriations to the Joint Committee on Government and Finance.
