HARRISBURG – The PA Senate Veterans Affairs & Emergency Preparedness Committee advanced four bills important to the PA National Guard and the state’s nearly 800,000 veterans. Senate Bill 244 would amend the Disabled Veterans Property Tax Exemption Program by excluding Veterans Disability payments from being included in the calculation of a veteran’s income in order to be eligible. House Bill 2086 eliminates an outdated law that permanently allows members of the PA National Guard to utilize Commonwealth vehicles during emergencies. House Bill 2361 would designate June 12 as “Women Veterans Day in PA” while House Bill 2586 would designate March 29 as “Tuskegee Airmen Commemoration Day in PA.” The Tuskegee Airmen were vital to the success of the United States in World War II. Each of the bills advance to the full PA Senate for further consideration.
