Senator Steve Saland (R,I,C – Poughkeepsie) today announced Michael Tokarz of Red Oaks Mill was inducted into the Senate Veterans’ Hall of Fame. The veterans selected are recognized not only for their distinctive military service, but also for the service and commitment shown to their community that helps make New York a better place.
Bill Would Provide a Preference in State Contracts for Disabled Veterans
The New York State Senate today passed legislation (S.2423) that would give greater access to state contracts to veterans who were disabled during their service.
This bill would codify for New York an identical and highly successful program adopted for federal contracting. Given the increase in the number of veterans and disabled veterans due to recent overseas conflicts, this bill would provide a small measure of recognition that this group of selfless men and women deserve.
