[Originating in the Committee on the Judiciary;

reported January 18, 2008.]


A BILL to amend and reenact §15-2-6 of the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, relating to grievance appeal recommendation board; providing rule-making authority; and establishing grievance procedure for state police.

Be it enacted by the Legislature of West Virginia:
That §15-2-6 of the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, be amended and reenacted to read as follows:
§15-2-6. Authority to make rules for grievance procedure.

The superintendent shall have continuing authority to propose legislative rules for promulgation in accordance with the provisions of article three, chapter twenty-nine-a of this code, relating to a grievance procedure for sworn members of the State Police. At a minimum, the rule shall provide a process for filing and resolving grievances at the lowest possible level in a timely manner, providing for representation, taking evidence at each level, establishing a hearing procedure, providing for appellate review, allocating costs and authorizing attorney fees to a grievant who prevails on appeal.

(NOTE: This bill removes language in §15-2-6 that is now obsolete. It also gives the superintendent continuing authority to propose legislative rules for a grievance procedure for the State Police.

Section six has been completely rewritten; therefore strike- throughs and underscoring have been omitted.)
