Walsh Commends Funding of Gold Star Families’ Scholarships

A statement from Assemblywoman Mary Beth Walsh (R,C,I-Ballston).

“Our military men and women make important sacrifices for our country and it is outrageous that this bill was blocked in the first place. While I am proud to have been a part of the passage of expanding access of free state tuition to Gold Star families, I am disappointed that it took the public’s outrage to finally get it accomplished. This bill had been around for 10 years before Gov. Cuomo finally made it a priority and issued an executive order.”
