Legislative Objectives


 MOAA Legislative Update

In partnership with other Virginia MOAA chapters and veterans service organizations throughout the Commonwealth, the Central Virginia Chapter actively supports a strong state-wide legislative agenda:

  • To ensure continued commitment to the Commonwealth of Virginia to the construction of veterans care centers in Hampton Roads and Northern Virginia.
  • Create financial stability for Virginia veterans and increase access to U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs health care by completing the three-year plan to strengthen the Department of Veterans Affairs Benefits Services division.
  • Put in place the service-delivery structure necessary to meet the behavioral health, rehabilitative, and supportive services needs of Virginia's veterans, Guardsmen, Reservists, and their families into the next decade and beyond by hiring all Virginia Veterans and Family Support direct services staff as Department of Veterans Services full-time employees.
  • To ensure that the Virginia War Memorial has the personnel and financial resources necessary to operate the premier state-level memorial in the nation and accomplish it Code-mandated mission.
  • Provide in-state tuition eligibility at public colleges and universities for all members of the reserve components of the Armed Forces.
  • Increase the state tax subtraction for members of the National Guard from $3,000 to $5,000 per year.
  • To change eligibility for higher education benefits under the Virginia Military Survivors and Dependent Education Program.
  • To allow for electronic return of absentee ballots for Overseas Uniformed Military voters.
  • To allow local courts to establish a Veterans Docket under the supervision of the Virginia Supreme Court to adjudicate non-violent cases involving eligible veterans who meet specific criteria.
  • To provide former military medics and corpsmen with employment opportunities and help fill workforce gaps for employers in the Virginia healthcare sector.
  • To help veterans achieve success on Virginia Community College System campuses by establishing dedicated Veteran Advisors and Resource Centers to coordinate and centralize campus support.
  • To classify 501(c)(19) Veterans Service Organizations as charitable non-profit organizations under state law.
