Legislative Report – Veteran’s Issues

June 10th, 2013 by

(Posting late, sorry for the inconvenience.  Joe B.)

Greetings! Since Memorial Day was celebrated on Monday, May 27, I thought it timely to address the veterans’ issues that faced the recent legislative session. I find it interesting to note that the statewide population of veterans today is just over 8%. In the House of Representatives this term we have 13 members (13%) who have served in the military. That means the House has a larger percentage of veterans than the state does. Interesting! Needless to say, the House took the issues facing our veterans very seriously during the session; we passed 19 bills dealing directly, or indirectly, with our veterans or our active military.
