Senate Moves Veterans' HOME Act to Governor Baker

Today the Senate clerk sent to the Governor's desk and important bill, An Act Relative to Housing, Operations, Military Service, and Enrichment, called the Massachusetts HOME Act, which expands on the commitment Massachusetts has to our veterans, servicemembers and their families.

This bill earned bi-partisan support because it provides important benefits to veterans and their families in terms of employment, housing, property tax relief, education, and other services.

Massachusetts leads the nation in our assistance programs offered to veterans, and rightly so because they deserve a support system which reflects their vital service to America and sacrifice on our behalf. The passage of the Valor Act I 2012 and Valor Act II in 2014 helped Massachusetts the number one state in the nation for providing for our veterans. Our country is stronger because of our servicemen and servicewomen and our veterans and we are honored by their commitment to all of us.
