Bill Caption

Relating to leave for state employees who are volunteers of certain disaster relief organizations.

Fiscal Notes

No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated. 

Bill Analysis

SB 44 would allow a state employee who is a volunteer of an organization that is a member of the Texas Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster to be granted leave to participate in disaster relief services without a deduction in salary or loss of vacation time, sick leave and other benefits if the supervisor approves the leave and the leave is for a state disaster declared by the governor. Leave granted may not exceed 10 days.

Vote Recommendation Notes

Texas Action remains neutral on SB 44 as it does not impact our liberty principles.
