(By Delegates Caputo, Duke
[Introduced January 11, 2012; referred to the
Committee on Government Organization then the Judiciary.]
A BILL to amend the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, by adding thereto a new section, designated §15-2-50, relating to the establishment of a West Virginia State Trooper’s Association leave donation program.
Be it enacted by the Legislature of West Virginia:
That the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, be amended by adding thereto a new section, designated §15-2-50, to read as follows:
ARTICLE 2. WEST VIRGINIA STATE POLICE.
§15-2-50. State Trooper’s Association annual leave program.
(a) Notwithstanding any provision of this code to the contrary, members of the West Virginia Trooper’s Association may donate annual leave time to the president of the West Virginia Trooper’s Association or his or her designee on an equal hour for hour exchange use. The donated annual leave may be used by the president or designee in the performance of his or her duties including, but not limited to: (1) Assistance to members; (2) business of the association; and (3) attendance at meetings and conferences related to the purposes of the West Virginia Trooper’s Association.
(b) When the president of the association or his or her designee uses the donated annual leave he or she is considered on personal annual leave of absence with pay just as if he or she used his or her annual leave. While the president of the association or his or her designee are using donated annual leave, all payroll deductions and employee status are maintained as if he or she had
used his or her regularly accrued annual leave.
NOTE: The purpose of this bill is to provide for a leave donation program to allow members of the state Trooper’s Association to donate accumulated leave time to the president and designee of the president of the state Trooper’s Association.
This section is new; therefore, it has been completely underscored.
