State Representative Teresa Alonso Leon says the bill helps with the financial cost. Short term callups can be for things like fighting wildfires. If they’re called up for less than 30 days they can turn in assignments late or take tests they missed without penalty. If they have to re-take a course, the cost of the course is waived. A previous law already covers callups longer than 30 days.
The bill now goes to Governor Kate Brown.
