Kemp Signs Legislation To Support Georgia Veterans

On Tuesday, Georgia Governor Brian signed multiple pieces of legislation designed to support veterans in the state. 

The first piece of legislation, HB 414, “establishes a mental health support program grant for veterans and their families,” a press release from Kemp’s office explained.

The second, SB 21, “makes needed changes to the Georgia Veterans Service Foundation to better mobilize its resources for the benefit of those it serves,” the press release said.

And the third piece of legislation, HB 175, “includes provisions championed by the Georgia Department of Veterans Service removing burdensome requirements to our state’s disabled veterans and creating a specialty license plate for Retired Georgia National Guard and Retired Active Duty Reserve members,” the press release said. 

In signing the legislation, Kemp was joined by First Lady Marty Kemp, Commissioner of the Georgia Department of Veterans Service Colonel Patricia Ross, Major General Tom Carden of the Georgia National Guard, representatives from major veterans organizations in the state, and members of the General Assembly.

“I am deeply grateful to the Georgia Department of Veterans Service and the members of the General Assembly for their unwavering commitment to those who have served in the Armed Forces,” said Kemp. “This important legislation provides support and resources for the brave men and women who have worn a uniform for our country, and Georgia is proud to be a state that honors and values its veterans.”
