Today members of the State House stood together in support of a bi-parstisan policy to assist veterans returning home with affordable housing. Sen. Cliff Larsen had introduced Senate Bill 136 which added additional funds to the Veterans Home Loan Program.
This was supported by both parties; however three particular Representatives had the gull to tell Veterans that they don’t deserve to be taken care of when they return home from protecting our freedoms. Rep. Daniel Zolnikov (R – Billings), Rep. Dave Howard (R – Park City), and Rep. Dave Hagstrom (R- Billings) have voted against this program. They were the only three out of the 150 person Legislative body to vote against taking care of our Veterans.
Luckily, this piece of legislation will move on from the House, and those who have served and sacrificed for our country, with honor and dignity, will receive the welcome home that they deserve.
