ATTENTION ALL MEMBERS IMPORTANT HEARING TOMORROW AT THE CAPTIOL CONCERNING SURVIVING SPOUSES

Tuesday, March 5th at 2:30 pm in Capitol 120, the House Veterans Affairs Committee will be hearing HF 204 & HF 205. Combined these two bills would accomplish the CTF’s top priority in keeping surviving spouses in their homes by eliminating the 8 year limit, make the benefit transferable one time to a new home, and move the due date for the application of the exclusion.

Attendance has been way down this year at the committees but I am hoping we can get a crowd together for this hearing. I have lined up three surviving spouses to testify and it would be great if your organizations could be there to lend your support. I plan to leave the Veterans Services Bldg. at 1:45pm and all are welcome to join me on a walk over through the tunnels.

Please spread the word and lets fill the room with hats for the surviving spouses who have given so much. Hope to see you all Tuesday.
