DeStefano Denounces Cuts To Veterans Programs

A statement from Assemblyman Joe DeStefano (R,C,I,Ref-Medford)

“It’s absolutely disheartening that services that benefit our brave veterans are seeing cuts by our governor, yet he spends our taxpayer’s hard-earned money on outlandish proposals like giving illegal immigrants driver’s licenses. He has proposed nearly $6 million in cuts to veterans services. Our courageous men and women have put their lives at risk, lived for months on end away from their families and experienced dangers we can’t begin to imagine. How dare our governor strip funding for these heroes.

“I was proud to stand alongside Assembly Minority Leader Will Barclay, Assemblyman Jake Ashby and my fellow Assembly Minority members to call for the restoration of funding to veterans services.”
