State of Texas 85th Legislative Session: Texas Veterans Commission Budget (Update-No change to Hazlewood Legacy)

This is the proposed budget by the Texas Veterans Commission for the 85th Legislative Session.  The main issues in the budget are a reduction to the strike teams that work on VA Claims; and changes to administration and distribution of funds with the Hazlewood Act.   The Legacy Program, under the Hazlewood Act, which supports the children of Texas veterans; is the target for decreasing the cost of this education benefit. (Update: There will be no change to the Hazlewood Legacy Program.)

There are great community organizations as the Iraq and Afgahistan Veterans of America (IAVA)-Texas who advocate by discussing veterans issues with representatives in the state and federal government.  You may find and contact your local state representative.
