Call Governor Cuomo and Tell Him to Sign Veterans Equality Act

Dear Friend, We need your help to get the Veterans Equality Act signed into law. The bill is now on Governor Cuomo's desk. Cuomo has until May 31 to sign or veto the bill. He's vetoed it twice before, one time on the day before Veterans Day. He promised veterans that he would include the bill in this year's budget. That didn't happen, even though both the Majority-led Assembly and the Minority-led Senate included it in their own budget proposals. Cuomo can fix that broken promise by signing the bill now. You can call Governor Cuomo at (518) 474-8390 and respectfully tell him to sign the Veterans Equality Act today and put all veterans on equal footing. Right now, for example, Iraq veterans are eligible to buy-back up to three years of pension service credit for their time in the military, but Afghanistan veterans aren’t eligible. That makes no sense. All of the veterans this bill covers volunteered to serve in our armed forces and were willing to put themselves in harm's way for our country. Our state should treat them equally. It would be great to have this bill become law this week as we head into the Memorial Day weekend. You can help make that happen. Call Governor Cuomo now at (518) 474-8390 and respectfully tell him to sign the Veterans Equality Act. Semper Fidelis,
Kieran
