SUMMARY AS INTRODUCED:

Workers' compensation; presumption of compensability for certain diseases. Adds lymphoma, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, and cancers of the colon, brain, and testes to the list of cancers that are presumed to be an occupational disease covered by the Virginia Workers' Compensation Act when firefighters and certain employees develop them. The measure also reduces, from 12 years to five years, the minimum number of years of continuous service that such firefighters and other employees are required to have completed in order to qualify for the presumption that such a condition is an occupational disease suffered in the line of duty.
