Summary as passed: (all summaries)
Virginia War Orphans Education Act. Adds the children of parents who are killed or disabled as a result of service in military operations against terrorism, a peace-keeping mission, or a terrorist act subsequent to December 6, 1941, to the list of children eligible to attend public institutions of higher education or other public accredited postsecondary institutions granting a certificate, diploma, or degree, free of tuition, room and board, and required fees. Clarifies that the children of members of the United States Armed Services Reserves and the Virginia National Guard Reserve called to active military duty and who are killed in action or are totally and permanently disabled are also eligible for such benefits.

This bill also makes the benefits consistent between eligible children of members of the military and eligible children and spouses of persons who are killed in the line of duty while employed or serving as law-enforcement officers, firefighters, correctional officers, local and regional jail farm superintendents, sheriffs, deputy sheriffs, or in emergency medical services. Further, this bill provides technical amendments to clarify for whom tuition and required fees are waived.  This bill is identical to SB 1288.
