The Senate will celebrate the annual Fort Drum Day by welcoming service members, especially members of the U.S. Army’s 10th Mountain Division, to the State Senate Chamber. The State Senate will recognize Fort Drum Day by passing multiple pieces of legislation that will expand veterans benefits and ease transition back to civilian life. The bills include efforts to provide veterans with a toll-free hotline on services and benefits; broaden property tax exemptions; implement additional employment benefits and academic credits; and provide military voters the opportunity to vote in school district elections.
