¬† 02/25/14 State Senator Randy Head said, ‚ÄúThe Indiana Senate Majority Caucus is dedicated to supporting Hoosier veterans and their families.‚ÄĚ¬† In a recent release he listed several examples. ¬†Here are some of the bills passed by the Senate this session that demonstrate the senate‚Äôs continued appreciation for Indiana’s service men and women:
SB 300 gives disabled veterans a hiring preference for local government job openings.
SB 352 provides financial assistance to more post 9/11 veterans and their families by allowing them to apply for Indiana‚Äôs Military Family Relief Fund any time after their service, instead of only within a three-year window.
Senator Head said, ‚ÄúThese legislative initiatives help provide essential and well deserved resources for our veterans.‚ÄĚ¬† ¬†If you have ideas on how to further support Hoosier veterans, or if you have any questions regarding these bills, please contact Senator Randy Head at Senator.Head@iga.in.gov or call 800-382-9467.
