Comments

Equality Virginia, tracking this bill in Photosynthesis, notes:

This pro-business legislation, included by Virginia Free in its business rankings for legislators last year, would level the playing field for small businesses by allowing businesses and their insurers to make market based decisions about whom should be covered by employer offered group life insurance plans.
