My sister, a military wife, helped write the bill below...if you support it, please let your representative know! Thanx!<br><br>
__________________________________________________ _<br><br>
Six states in the US have a Family Military Leave Act that gives soldiers' family members unpaid leave entitlements to be exercised when the soldier is on leave from deployment. Unfortunately, WA has not passed such a law (yet).<br><br>
Here is the link for a draft bill recently introduced in the state legislature.<br><br><a href="http://apps.leg.wa.gov/billinfo/summary.aspx?bill=6447" target="_blank">http://apps.leg.wa.gov/billinfo/summary.aspx?bill=6447</a><br><br>
If you feel like Washington needs this law, please contact Senator Darlene Fairley and urge her to get the bill scheduled for a public hearing. It is my understanding that as the Government Operations and Elections chair, Senator Fairley sets the hearing schedule. Letting her know that this bill is important gives it the best chance of getting heard.<br><br>
