03 Aug: Weinberg Bill to Examine Cost of Home Care for Veterans is Now Law

DELRAN – A measure sponsored by Senator Loretta Weinberg which calls upon the Department of Military and Veterans Affairs (DMVA) to evaluate available resources necessary to provide home health care services to veterans was signed into law today by Governor Jon Corzine. The bill signing was held at the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 3020 in Delran, Burlington County.

“Our men and women in uniform put their lives on the line to protect the rest of us here at home,” said Senator Weinberg, D-Bergen. ” Because war is such a traumatic experience, it can leave returning veterans with visible physical and invisible emotional scars – which may have a better chance of healing if the veteran is treated at home in a familiar environment.”
