Military and Veterans Affairs

The Military and Veterans Affairs Committee provides policymakers with a forum to share and discuss issue-based solutions uniquely related to military members, veterans, and their families. The committee also serves as a vehicle to build regional consensus that fortifies the ongoing cooperative federal–state relationship designed to improve the overall health and well-being of the members of the military and veterans communities.
