TACT Registered in Support of Senate Bill 65

TACT registered in support yesterday of Senate Bill 65 by Senator Judith Zaffirini (D – Laredo) at the Committee on Higher Education, which she chairs.  The bill would provide additional leave for a faculty member physically assaulted during his performance of regular duties without that leave being deducted from his accrued leave.  The duration of that additional leave is equal to that “necessary for the employee to recuperate from any physical injury that results from the assault.”
