Subject: Exclusion of Partial Veterans' Compensation Benefits from Income Calculations
I plan to introduce legislation in the near future that would provide for a partial exclusion of veterans’ compensation benefits from income calculations.

My proposal will help achieve three important goals. First, it will provide a definition for a “veterans’ compensation benefit.”
Second, it will provide that only fifty percent of veterans’ compensation benefits can be used to determine a veteran’s eligibility for Commonwealth benefit programs, such as tax and fee exemptions, or rebates. Lastly, it will extend the exclusion of the veteran’s compensation benefits to the veteran’s unmarried surviving spouse.

Please consider joining me in sponsoring this piece of legislation.

Introduced as HB1742
