MEMORANDUM

Posted: March 8, 2017 12:11 PM
From: Senator Ryan P. Aument and Sen. Randy Vulakovich
To: All Senate members
Subject: Pennsylvania Veterans' Monuments and Memorial Trust Fund
 
In the near future, we intend to introduce legislation that amends Titles 51 (Military Affairs) & 75 (Vehicles) to establish the Pennsylvania Veterans' Monuments and Memorial Trust Fund (formerly the Pennsylvania Veterans' Memorial Trust Fund) and shall be administered by the Department of Military and Veterans Affairs (DMVA).

This proposal would redirect funds from the Veterans Trust Fund that came from the PA Monuments License Registration Plate to the new Pennsylvania Veterans' Monuments and Memorial Trust Fund and would require that funds be used for the operation and maintenance of monuments designated by DMVA in consultation with the State Veterans’ Commission.
At a minimum, the bill provides guaranteed funding, as needed, for:
  • PA Veterans’ Memorial at Indiantown Gap National Cemetery
  • Overseas American battle monuments recognized or owned by the Commonwealth
  • PA unit monuments and markers at Gettysburg National Military Park
  • Other PA military memorials and monuments as designated or recognized by DMVA
The Department of Military and Veterans Affairs believes that this fund will be beneficial as they work to revamp the current program in hopes of generating additional revenue. Please join us in supporting this proposal to better allow for the operation and maintenance of our Veterans' memorials and monuments.
