Assembly ‘Gold Star’ Proposal Immediately Ordered By Cuomo

A statement by Assemblyman Joseph M. Giglio (R,C,I-Gowanda) on enacting the Gold Star Family proposal.

“Seeing such an immediate response from the governor for our call to enact this proposal is a breath of fresh air. I thank everyone who joined their voices with mine, from my peers in the Legislature all the way up to President Trump. I am proud of my colleagues in the Minority Conference of the Assembly who brought this legislation forward to assist our service men and women. I also applaud Gov. Cuomo for his swift action to ensure our Gold Star Families get the best opportunity and future possible.

The sacrifices of our armed forces are not partisan, and I am thrilled to see that everyone recognizes the importance of this issue. This is a great step for New York and for honoring our heroic fallen. We will continue to work to protect our service members and their families.”
