Senate Honors Organization That Helps Veterans As They Transition Home
This week Senate Minority Leader Bill Cadman and President Morgan Carroll introduced a resolution honoring Purple Star Veterans and Families (PSVF) and calling on the US Department of Defense to improve supports for military members transitioning out of service. PSVF is an organization dedicated to strengthening the homecoming safety net for Veterans and their families and to support the families of veterans who are struggling with issues like suicide, accidents, drugs and alcohol during their transition home.
Roberts Wildfire Safety Bill Passes Unanimously
State Senator Ellen Roberts's (R-Durango) bill to create a state wildfire information and resource center unanimously passed committee.
"It's important that we come together in the legislature to solve the big problems affecting Coloradans," said Senator Roberts. "I'm extremely proud that the committee unanimously approved this bill today and I'm even more proud that Colorado now has a tool that will provide citizens with vital information on existing fires and preventative measures they can take to protect their homes."
