My Bill Regarding Additional Days Of Leave For Veterans Signed Into Law

I am proud to announce that A.3198-A/S.02911-A, legislation I authored, was signed into law by Governor Andrew Cuomo on Nov. 11.

The bill affords combat veterans who are employed by the state with additional days of leave in order to obtain health services, counseling and access to other services.

Many members of our military are required to engage in combat during service, placing their lives on the line for the safety and protection of the citizens of our country. The experiences of combat can take their toll on these men and women, both physically and emotionally. To afford these brave men and women with a minimal amount of additional leave, for healthcare related services including counseling, is reasonable and sound public policy.

Taking these small steps to assist our men and women in the military will allow them to more effectively assimilate back into society and positions of public employment.

Thomas Croci (R-3) sponsored the bill in the Senate.
