RICHMOND, VA – January 14, 2022 – Senator Bryce Reeves (R – Spotsylvania) announced that he has introduced two bills, SB 528 & SB 529, for the 2022 legislative session of the Virginia General Assembly to assist military and veteran families in the commonwealth. The bills, carried by Senator Reeves on behalf of Governor-elect Glenn Youngkin, signal that Governor-elect Youngkin’s administration values military and veteran families across the commonwealth and recognizes that Virginia must compete to retain its recognition as one of the most military and veteran-friendly states. Senator Reeves, co-chairman of the General Assembly Military and Veterans Caucus (GAMVC), has an impressive portfolio of military and veteran’s legislation signed into law by Republican and Democrat governors since first being elected in 2011. 

Senator Reeves, a former Army Airborne Ranger said, “Our active-duty military families and veteran families wear or have worn the cloth of our country, standing in harm’s way to protect our rights and freedoms as Americans. Those families have borne many heartaches, burdens, and even tragedies to keep us free. It is only right that we honor their sacrifice, relieving a bit of their burdens now while they reside in the Commonwealth of Virginia. And it is an auspicious and worthy goal that we work to see Virginia recognized as the most-friendly state for military and veteran families.” 

Senate Bill 528 establishes an income tax subtraction for up to $20,000 of military benefits in taxable year 2021, up to $30,000 in taxable year 2022, and up to $40,000 in taxable year 2023 and each year thereafter. The bill defines military benefits to include military retirement income and benefits paid to the surviving spouse of a veteran. 

Senate Bill 529 directs the Board of Education to amend its regulations to permit all active duty members of the Armed Forces of the United States who serve as caregivers to dependents to apply for the Child Care Subsidy Program. 

Bryce Reeves is a small business owner, auxiliary sheriff’s deputy in Culpeper County, former Army Airborne Ranger, and a former Prince William County narcotics detective. He represents the 17th District in the Senate of Virginia, which includes the City of Fredericksburg, and the counties of Albemarle (part), Culpeper (part), Louisa (part), Orange, and Spotsylvania (part). Senator Reeves serves on the following senate committees: Rehabilitation and Social Services, Local Government, General Laws and Technology, and Privileges and Elections. Additionally, Senator Reeves serves as the Co-chairman of the General Assembly Military and Veterans Caucus, and serves on the Secure Commonwealth Panel and the Board of Veterans Services.
