This is the bill Victor mentioned at our last county meeting. We need to support this bill as a County. Tks
A5429, the Assembly bill that will give disabled veterans an addition percentage discount on their NJ property tax bill based on their percentage of disability. 25% from the VA, an additional 25% off their property taxes, etc. This bills primary sponsor is Brian Bergen from Morris County, who is also a Legionnaire.
Brian is working very hard to get this bill posted and heard. He has prepared a letter to be sent to the Chair of the Assembly Military and Veterans Affairs Committee, Cleopatra Tucker, requesting that this bill be posted for a hearing before the committee ASAP. The letter would be signed by the commanders of the NJ VSOs.
However, this cannot happen in the Legion until the Legislative Committee presents their support of this bill to the DECs and then the commander can sign the letter. So lets get this done.
Review the bill, get it before your county and get back to me. Time is of the essence. A copy of this email has been sent to the NEC, ANEC and of course the Commander.
