    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.

    Re: HB 929: FWIIW, I (as an individual and not speaking for VCDL) am also offended that LEOSA requires maintaining current qualification ( http://tinyurl.com/8yajzz2 ) but SA don't ever have to have ever qualified.
