02/25/14 State Senator Randy Head said, “The Indiana Senate Majority Caucus is dedicated to supporting Hoosier veterans and their families.” In a recent release he listed several examples. Here are some of the bills passed by the Senate this session that demonstrate the senate’s 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’s Military Family Relief Fund any time after their service, instead of only within a three-year window.
Senator Head said, “These legislative initiatives help provide essential and well deserved resources for our veterans.” 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.
