California Government Council to Address Veterans’ Needs

Governor Jerry Brown of California announced Tuesday morning that he was ordering an inter-departmental council on Veterans services.

The council is supposed to address the needs of the 30,000 service members who return to California each year and will bring new focus and efficiency to provide needed services to California’s Veterans.

Brown’s executive order directs the Veterans Affairs Secretary to establish the council to identify and prioritize the needs of California’s Veterans, and to coordinate the activities at all levels of government in addressing those needs.  The members will be appointed from both chambers of the state house, major agency secretaries and their department heads, as well as the state’s chief justice and college leaders.
