Before we get to today’s official business, I want to thank all those who attended the annual pancake feed in Browns Valley to support our ambulance service. The turnout was great, with our best attendance ever. Fundraisers are very important to groups like ours in Greater Minnesota and your support is very much appreciated. I enjoy dropping by area fundraisers to help out local organizations, so please send me an invitation if you are hosting one.
As for today’s main subject, I encourage people to make a point of thanking the men and women of our armed forces for their selfless service as we celebrate Veterans Day this Saturday. I hope you are able to attend any area events recognizing their efforts.
The Legislature continues to make support for veterans a priority and this year we made a number of changes in law to help them. Here are some highlights:
Aside from those new laws, action we took in 2015-16 to exempt military retirement pay from being taxed became effective for the 2017 tax filing year.
Thanks again, veterans, for your service to this great nation and I will continue advocating for you at the Capitol.
