Cuomo Directs Tague’s ‘Gold Star’ Proposal Effective Immediately

A statement by Assemblyman Chris Tague (R,C,I,Ref-Schoharie) on college funding for Gold Star Families.

“I am immensely proud that Gov. Cuomo has directed our gold star families’ proposal to be effective immediately. After a week of nonstop pressuring from me, my peers in the Minority Conference of the Assembly, veterans’ organizations and even President Donald Trump himself, finally the right thing is being done. I applaud everyone who has stood with me on this issue, we know we were in the right, our fallen heroes deserve this honor.”
