2015 AB 233 and 2015 SB 183 eliminates sick leave for state representatives and state senators. Under the bill, the current accumulated sick leave balances of legislators would not be affected. The bill would not make any changes to the state’s sick leave conversion credit programs.
2015 AB 233 was introduced by Rep. Steffen and was referred to the Assembly Committee on State Affairs and Government Operations. 2015 SB 183 was introduced by Sen. Cowles and referred to the Senate Committee on Government Operations and Consumer Protection.
In early September, the Senate Committee on Government Operations and Consumer Protection held a public hearing on 2015 SB 183. On September 8, the Committee held an executive session and recommended passage 4-1.
