Iowa Veterans Legislation

On April 6, 2010, Iowa Governor, Chet Culver, signed two bills advocating for Veterans in the areas of finance and mental health.  The first bill allows benefits paid by the Veterans Trust Fund to be exempted from individual income taxes, while the second bill supports the placement of a Veteran knowledgeable about behavioral and mental health issues on two panels dealing with mental health policy.  Lawmakers assert that Iowa is on track to be the first state to implement a list of initiatives targeted to helping military families.
