RELEASE: Young initiative establishing women veterans coordinator clears Senate
Start Date: 2/3/2014 All Day
End Date: 2/3/2014
Entry Description

INDIANAPOLIS – On Monday, the Senate approved Senate Bill (SB) 354, a measure co-authored by State Senator Richard D. Young, Jr. (D-Milltown) that would create a military program coordinator who would oversee the implementation and management of benefits for female Hoosier veterans. 

SB 354 would establish the Hoosier Women Veterans Program under the supervision of the Indiana Department of Veteran Affairs (IDVA). The program would be tasked with addressing the issues and needs of women currently serving, or who have formerly served, in the military. The program coordinator would be responsible for connecting participants with services and benefits offered to servicewomen at the state and federal levels.

“The women of our Armed Forces have sacrificed so much for our state and our country,” Young said. “They shouldn’t also have to sacrifice quality benefits and services.”

Under SB 354, the Hoosier Women Veterans Program will also be charged with reviewing programs, research projects, and other initiatives that address and meet the needs of Indiana’s female veterans.

The measure was passed by the Senate unanimously and now moves to the House of Representatives for consideration.

Sen. Young represents Senate District 47 which encompasses portions of Crawford, Dubois, Harrison, Orange, Perry and Washington counties. For more information on Sen. Young, his legislative agenda or other State Senate business, call 1-800-382-9467 or visit www.IN.gov/s47.
