General Assembly of Virginia

Page 6, following line 35, insert:
"L. The Clerks of the Senate and the House of Delegates shall conduct a study of the feasibility of implementing a "years of service" category for the Legislative Account authorized for each Member of the General Assembly, to adjust salaries for experienced Legislative Assistants to better serve the Members of the General Assembly.  Such a category would be intended to better reflect comparable private sector salaries in order to reduce turnover and to provide incentives to retain more experienced Legislative Assistants.  A report on the findings of this study together with any recommendations shall be provided to the Senate and House Committees on Rules and to the Senate Finance and House Appropriations Committees by November 1, 2010 for consideration by the 2011 General Assembly."

(This amendment authorizes a study of the salary structure for Legislative Assistants.)
