On March 7, Washington Governor Christine Gregoire signed Senate Bill 5627 which expands protection for members of the state National Guard. The law expands the definition of “military service” to include servicemembers called to service by the governor for more than thirty consecutive days. This change is designed to provide National Guard members activated by the governor the same protections already provided under state law to servicemembers called to federal service by the President or the Secretary of Defense. This law becomes effective June 7, 2012.
