Law Revision Committee prefatory note: This bill is a remedial legislation proposal, requested by the Department of Military Affairs and introduced by the Law Revision Committee under s. 13.83 (1) (c) 4. and 5., stats. After careful consideration of the various provisions of the bill, the Law Revision Committee has determined that this bill makes minor substantive changes in the statutes, and that these changes are desirable as a matter of public policy.
189,1 Section 1. 321.35 (1) of the statutes is amended to read:
321.35 (1) Every officer and enlisted person on state active duty in the national guard shall receive the base pay, allowances, and, notwithstanding ss. 16.53 (12) (c) and (d) and 20.916 (8) and (9), travel expenses of an officer or enlisted person of equal rank in the corresponding branch of the U.S. armed forces.
