One of my key focuses as your State Senator is to do whatever I can to promote, protect and support our Veterans.

Every single year I’ve been in office I’ve passed a law on their behalf. This year is no different.

Tomorrow we are holding a Ceremonial Bill Signing for HB 171/SB 370 here in Delray Beach.

This bill guarantees that any veteran whose body lies unclaimed may receive a proper military burial that is due to him/her.

Furthermore, no unclaimed veteran’s body may be sold or used for medical research without proper consent. Every veteran is entitled to a dignified military burial.

This is one of the many things we can do to help our Veterans. I’ll be keeping my constituents posted on legislative priorities for Veterans in the 2014 year.
