Compensation Board Appeals (language only)

Item 63 #3c

Item 63 #3c

Compensation Board

Page 37, after line 44, insert:
"O.  Notwithstanding the provisions of § 15.2-1636.9 A, Code of Virginia, no appeal of any decision of the Compensation Board shall lie to any circuit court from the date of enactment of this act until July 1, 2004, at which time a circuit court may consider appeals for subsequent fiscal years.  Nothing herein shall prevent a Constitutional Officer from appealing any decision of their local governing body; however, upon motion of either the Compensation Board or the Constitutional Officer, the action shall be dismissed with prejudice as to the Compensation Board."

(This amendment places a moratorium on appeals of Compensation Board actions through fiscal year 2004 due to budget-reduction actions by the General Assembly. It does not limit appeals of local decisions.)
