Assemblywoman Buttenschon Sponsors, Passes Legislation to Provide Benefit Information to National Guard Members

“National Guard members make significant sacrifices to perform their duties and keep our families safe. They’re participation in military service while remaining a part of their community is both inspiring and critically important in emergency situations. Like all those who serve in the U.S. armed forces, Guard members and their families deserve access to the resources they’ve earned. To that end, I introduced and passed legislation that requires the New York State Division of Military and Naval Affairs to make state and federal benefit information available to National Guard members (A.5832-A). I’m proud that this bill has also passed the Senate. I hope it is signed into law as soon as possible.”

“There are many challenges that Guard members and families face, and it’s critical that we extend support to as many military families as we can. As a member of the Assembly Veterans’ Affairs Committee and daughter of a veteran, I’ll always do everything I can to support the brave men and women who serve our nation and its ideals.”
