In-state tuition; members of the Virginia National Guard.  Provides that any member of the Virginia National Guard residing in Virginia shall be eligible for in-state tuition at a public institution of higher education. This is broader than the current provision, which requires a guard member to be (i) activated or mobilized or on temporary active orders for six months or more, (ii) stationed or assigned by military service to a work location in Virginia, and (iii) residing in Virginia.
