Governor Lamont Signs Bills Expanding State Services for Veterans During Their Post-Military Careers and Throughout Their Lives

Aug. 29, 2019

Joined by military veterans, legislators, and advocates, Governor Ned Lamont today held a bill signing ceremony at the West Haven Veterans Museum and Learning Center to commemorate the enactment of three new laws adopted with the intention of expanding the ability of veterans to access certain state services and provide assistance after they have returned to civilian life. The laws establish certain job training programs to assist veterans with the skills needed to obtain jobs in advanced manufacturing and other related positions; expand eligibility for veterans to receive certain state benefits; and provide greater property tax relief for veterans. Governor Lamont said that his decision to sign the bills demonstrate the commitment of his administration and the state legislature to those who have served in the armed forces and deserve opportunity, recognition, and relief. Each of the bills were approved in both chambers of the Connecticut General Assembly by unanimous, bipartisan votes. "The men and women of the military committed themselves to serve on behalf of our nation, and it is our responsibility to be there for them after they return to civilian life -- whether that be immediately after they leave service, throughout the duration of their civilian careers, or well after a long-deserved retirement," Governor Lamont said. "These new laws will expand programs that help our veterans obtain jobs and lead successful careers, provide some tax relief, and broaden eligibility to participate in programs that are provided to veterans by the state. These are thoughtful and needed services for our veterans, and I'm proud to sign them into law." "Connecticut has always been a state that takes care of its veterans and that's not going to change," Lt. Governor Susan Bysiewicz said. "Our veterans put their lives at risk to serve our country and to protect us, the least we can do is ensure that when they return home they have the necessary resources to take care of themselves and their families. Today, we are doing that by enacting three laws creating more education and employment opportunities for veterans, extending war service benefits, and increasing property tax exemptions for veterans with disabilities." "My thanks to the leaders and members of the General Assembly's Veterans Affairs Committee and Governor Lamont for the great collaborative work with the Department of Veterans Affairs in passing a package of new laws supporting Connecticut veterans and their families, which include tax relief for disabled veterans, enhanced re-employment programs and increased access to residential and supportive programs and services at the state Department of Veterans Affairs," Connecticut Department of Veterans Affairs Commissioner Thomas J. Saadi said. Governor Lamont thanked the co-chairs and ranking members of the General Assembly's Committee on Veterans' Affairs, who played integral roles in advocating for the bills throughout the legislative process and getting them approved so that he could sign them into law. "As co-chair of the Veteran's Affairs Committee, I am pleased to see these important bills be signed into law," State Senator James Maroney (D-Milford), co-chair of the Veterans' Affairs Committee, said. "The Military to Machinist Program is a piece of legislation I authored, led passage of and am incredibly excited about. This law will assist veterans in making the often times challenging transition from military to civilian life easier and rewarding. In addition to helping our state's courageous heroes, we are also strengthening the advanced manufacturing industry with committed, hard-working and intelligent veterans to join their strong and successful workforce. I am eager to see all the ways in which this will benefit our state's heroes, who have sacrificed so much for our state and our country." "Connecticut service members deserve support from the communities they worked so hard to protect," State Representative Dorinda Borer (D-West Haven), co-chair of the Veterans' Affairs Committee, said. "The passage of these measures, which provide economic relief for our veterans, have been a long time coming and I am honored to have helped lead the charge in turning these ideas into policy." "The Committee on Veterans' Affairs works in bipartisan fashion to improve the quality of life for Connecticut veterans and their families," State Senator George S. Logan (R-Ansonia), ranking member of the Veterans' Affairs Committee, said. "It is an honor to serve with my fellow lawmakers on this panel, and I commend the governor for signing these pro-veteran bills into law. We will always remain committed to helping our veterans, and we will always be grateful for their service." "I was proud to work on legislation that will help Connecticut veterans by providing access to life sustaining benefits they earned while protecting our freedoms, as well as policies to make it more affordable for disabled veterans to continue to live within our communities," State Representative Kurt Vail (R-Somers, Stafford), ranking member of the Veterans' Affairs Committee, said. "I want to thank my legislative colleagues on the Veterans' Affairs Committee and the governor's office for their steadfast work in making sure these concepts became state law." The bills include: -Public Act 19-129, An Act Establishing the Military to Machinists and Veterans Platform to Employment Pilot Programs and Providing Other Employment Assistance to Veterans -This bill requires the workforce development board for Connecticut's southwest region to develop and operate a Military to Machinists pilot program that will assist veterans in earning an advanced manufacturing certificate from a qualifying program and secure employment in the field upon certificate completion. -In addition, the board must develop and operate a Veterans Platform to Employment pilot program, which will provide training and subsidized employment for veterans who have experienced long-term unemployment, including skills assessments, career readiness workshops, and other tools. -Finally, it requires the board to identify appropriate written materials on mental health conditions common to veterans that will be distributed to employers.-Public Act 19-33, An Act Concerning the Definition of "Service in Time of War" and State Residency Requirements for Certain Veterans' Services -This bill extends certain state war service benefits to veterans who have served less than 90 days in a period of war because they incurred or aggravated an injury in the line of duty that is not a service-connected disability rated by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. -It also removes a prior law that required a two-year state residency eligibility for certain state benefits (e.g. hospital care and funeral expenses) for veterans who did not reside in Connecticut at the time of their enlistment or induction into the military.-Public Act 19-171, An Act Concerning the Property Tax Exemption for Service Members and Veterans Having Disability Ratings -This bill increases the base property tax exemption for certain disabled service members and veterans by $500.By doing to, it increases the additional income-based exemption for such service members and veterans by $250 or $1,000, depending on their income. This is calculated using the base exemption corresponding with an individual's disability rating. All three of the bills go into effect October 1, 2019.

Issue Position: Veterans Services

Jan. 1, 2016

Without the sacrifices made by our veterans, we would not have the luxury of even having elections or the ability to publicly debate how we want to govern ourselves. We cannot do enough for these men and women. We have a moral obligation as a society to honor and support our veterans. Those who return from battle with conditions that have deeply changed them must receive the consideration and care required to return them to as normal a life as possible. We must continue to provide care for those who need it. This will be a high priority for George Logan when he becomes our State Senator.

Issue Position: Opioid Addiction

Jan. 1, 2016

The number of lives lost to opioid addiction is shocking and on the rise. Education, intervention and treatment efforts to stop this killer are always on the table as far as George is concerned.
