SALEM, Ore. – Senate Bill 143, which seeks to expand veterans resource centers throughout the state, heads to Oregon House for consideration after it passed the Senate 29-0.
If passed by the House and signed into law, SB 143 would call upon the Oregon Dept. of Veterans’ Affairs Advisory Committee to report to the Legislature on if General Fund dollars should be invested in supporting veterans resource centers and coordinators. The bill also looks at whether to add more centers and coordinators to help military veterans transition back into civilian life.
