(Supervisors agree to support AB 2703)…The vote was unanimous.
The Assembly bill increases local assistance funding for County Veteran’s Services Offices. Currently the state allots $2.6 million for all the County Veteran’s Service Offices around the state. The Imperial County Office receives about $32,000. If approved, the bill would adjust the state funding, increasing to about $6 million. Officials say that would more than double the current funding amount. Tuesday the Board of Supervisors agreed to send a letter of support for the Bill to Sacramento. Other Counties are being asked to do the same.
