Ashby Pleased Governor Took Action in Providing College Scholarships to Children of Fallen Military Personnel

Statement from Assemblyman Jake Ashby (R,C,I,Ref-Castleton) reacting to Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s Announcement in Support of Military Families

“I am pleased the governor took action today to instruct the New York State Higher Education Services Corporation (HESC) to provide SUNY and CUNY scholarships to the children and dependents of military men and women who are killed or become disabled due to carrying out their official duties serving our country. It is the right thing for our state to do, though its adoption had been significantly delayed. I am honored to have contributed to this effort on behalf of our military families.”
