Vulakovich Measure Begins Comprehensive Compilation of Veterans Benefits

Listen

The Senate today (December 18) adopted a Resolution introduced by Senator Randy Vulakovich (R-Allegheny), Chairman of the Senate Veterans Affairs & Emergency Preparedness Committee.

Senate Resolution 255 calls on the Joint State Government Commission to compile a comprehensive listing of programs benefitting active duty service members, Guard, veterans and their families.  The study will also look at services offered by veterans’ organizations such as the American Legion and the Veterans of Foreign Wars. It will also look at benefits offered by other states.

“There are a multitude of programs across the various state agencies and our 900,000 veterans in Pennsylvania are not aware of what’s available to them,” said Senator Vulakovich.  “It’s my intent to provide as much information as possible on these programs, services, and benefits to recruits and current members of the military.”
