Our Assemblyman Steve Hawley has fought hard to deliver for veterans. He serves as the Ranking Member of the Assembly Veterans’ Affairs Committee.
Steve Hawley served 7 years in the Army National Guard and U.S. Army Reserves and was made an honorary member and Major in the Civil Air Patrol. As a veteran, Steve Hawley wants to make sure his fellow veterans, like you, are provided for.
This year, Steve Hawley is sponsoring veteran-specific legislation, including measures that would:
Provide a tax credit in the amount of certain fees charged in connection with loans under the Federal Home Loan Guarantee Program to National Guard and Reserve veterans (A.4009);
Assist service-related disabled veterans under the Affordable Home Ownership Development Program (A.4080);
Provide scholarships for surviving dependent family members of New York State military personnel who have died while performing official military duties (A.4005);
Create a list of suitable documentation that can be used by veterans applying for real property exemptions (A.4008);
Create a Veteran’s Home and Land Ownership Loan Program (A.4081);
Exempt compensation for active military service from inclusion in a resident’s adjusted gross income (A.4006);
Create a wage tax credit for employers who employ members of the New York National Guard Reservists, Volunteer Firefighters and EMS personnel (A.4010);
Assure that military deployment shall not be considered as a factor in the awarding of custody in marital actions where a suitable child care plan is provided (A.4079).
