NEW YORK – Senator Ken LaValle announced that the Senate approved a package of bills focused on caring for and memorializing the courageous men and women who have served in our military, as well as those still serving today. The legislative package would safeguard the welfare of those who protect our lives, ease their fiscal burdens, show them the path to crucial benefits, and honor their service to this country.
Senator Ken LaValle said, “Throughout my career, I have fought for legislation that recognizes rewards and assists our veterans. This package of legislation would provide both our active military and our veterans with many basic opportunities that they are deserve. Every service member sacrifices tremendously on a daily basis for his or her willingness to serve and protect all of us. It’s my hope that the Assembly follows suit and approves the bills, and that the Governor signs them into law.”

All of the bills have been transmitted to the Assembly for consideration. If approved, they would be sent to the Governor for approval.
