HB1804 and SB1030 were defeated on 1/31/19. HB1804 was sent to the House Compensation & Retirement sub-committee where  Chairman Del. Chris Jones shamefully and cowardly decided he didn't want to bill to go to vote and shipped it off to a "study" without a vote. The cancer presumption bill will be delayed yet another year while Virginia Firefighters are being denied Workers Compensation for occupational cancer and forced to pay thousands of dollars in out of pocket medical expenses.
