FLA Grad Requirements: High school graduation requirements would be increased
under a bill that has cleared the Florida Senate. The chamber voted 36-1 for the bill (SB 4) that
also would do away with the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test, or FCAT, for high school
math and science and replace it with end-of-course exams. The measure next goes to the
House where a similar bill (HB 7053) has one more committee hearing left before it can go to
the floor. The legislation would add geometry, algebra II, biology, chemistry and physics to the
list of courses needed to graduate and require students to take at least one virtual class. (AP)

Read Up: Florida’s public school students have improved their reading scores on a national

were slightly higher than the nationwide average of 220 for fourth-grade students and 262 for
eighth-grade students. Nationwide, fourth-grade scores were stagnant and the eighth-grade
score increased one point. (AP)

Representatives’ committee Thursday. The House Natural Resources Appropriations
Committee unanimously approved the bill. A state Senate committee passed a companion bill

SECDEF Sends: Statement by Secretary Gates on impact of health care legislation on
TRICARE-- As Secretary of Defense, the health and well-being of America's men and women in
uniform is my highest priority. Our troops and their families can be re-assured that the health
care reform legislation being passed by the Congress will not negatively impact the TRICARE
medical insurance program, as it already meets the bill's quality and minimum benefit standards.
This was clarified by a vote in the U.S. House of Representatives yesterday [20 March] and is
expected to be re-affirmed by the Senate. The President and I are committed to seeing that our
troops, retirees and their families will continue to receive the best quality health care.

USNS Fall River: In a joint ceremony with officials from Fall River, MA, the Navy
announced the name of the fourth JHSV: USNS Fall River. Joint High Speed Vessels are ideal
for fast, intra-theater transportation of troops, military vehicles, supplies and equipment. They
are capable of transporting 600 short tons, 1,200 nautical miles at an average speed of 35 knots
and can operate in shallow-draft ports and waterways, interfacing with roll-on/roll-off discharge
facilities and on/off-loading a combat-loaded Abrams Main Battle Tank (M1A2). Other joint
requirements include an aviation flight deck to support day and night air vehicle launch and
recovery operations. Additionally, JHSV will have airline style seating for 312 embarked forces
and fixed berthing for 104. Military commanders will have the flexibility to use JHSV in a variety
of roles to include supporting overseas contingency operations, conducting humanitarian
assistance and disaster relief, supporting special operations forces and supporting emerging
joint sea-basing concepts. JHSV 4 will be constructed by Austal USA in Mobile, Ala., as part of
the joint effort between the Army and the Navy to acquire 10 of these high-speed vessels, five
for the Army and five for the Navy. Each service will be responsible for operating and
maintaining its vessels following delivery. (DOD PAO)

N-C Admin Leave: DOD announced that Iraq and Afghanistan have been designated as
non-chargeable rest and recuperation (NCR&R) locations, authorizing service members
deployed there (for 270 days or more) 15 days of administrative absence, to be used in
conjunction with benefits provided under the R&R leave program. The designation provides an
additional benefit specifically for service members deployed to the most arduous combat areas.
Officials said that administrative absence days used in conjunction with government-funded
transportation for R&R, allow service members to save and use their annual leave for
reintegration with their families and communities when they return home. Administrative
absence days are contingent upon mission requirements, and are only authorized for those
service members who participate in the NCR&R program. NCR&R benefits for Iraq and
Afghanistan are effective March 23, 2010, following under secretary of defense (personnel and
readiness) approval of Central Command’s request.
