[R56] Bill simplifying Memorial Day expenses passes House
Start Date: 2/20/2014Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 2/20/2014
Entry Description

STATEHOUSE — State Representative Dick Hamm (R-Richmond) sponsored legislation regarding local appropriations for Memorial Day expenses, which passed the Indiana House of Representatives this week with a unanimous vote.

“Our goal is to  ensure that our veterans, who have sacrificed so much, are given the honor, recognition and gratitude they rightly deserve on Memorial Day,” said Rep. Hamm.

Senate Bill (SB) 58 simplifies Indiana code by removing the outdated list of veterans organizations from the law and therefore authorizing counties townships, cities and towns to appropriate money to veterans organizations to help assist with the costs incurred with Memorial Day. This bill will further cut red tape for future lawmakers to be constantly updating the fluctuating list of recognized organizations.

“This bill will spare legislators from having to constantly update this statute by providing one all-encompassing definition for the types of organizations that are to receive compensation,” said Rep. Hamm.
