Summary as passed: (all summaries)
New Year’s Day 2000. Provides that state offices shall be closed on Monday, January 3, 2000, to commemorate Virginia’s legal holiday of New Year’s Day. Since January 1, 2000, falls on a Saturday, the current statute provides that state offices would be closed on Friday, December 31, 1999. By moving the legal holiday to Monday, January 3, 2000, this bill provides a three-day weekend almost completely within the year 2000 to permit state agencies to deal with any computer glitches which may arise as a result of the century date change, without disrupting services to the public. The bill is a recommendation of the Joint Commission on Technology and Science.
