Bill Caption

Relating to the allocation of certain grants from the fund for veterans' assistance.

Fiscal Notes

No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

Bill Analysis

The bill would require the Texas Veterans Commission to conduct a needs assessment, on an even numbered year, that would direct the allocation of grants from the Fund for Veterans Assistance.

Vote Recommendation Notes

This bill would assist in the dissemination of services to possibly underserved veterans communities. This needs assessment may be beneficial in identifying the underserved and possibly saving money by identifying services that are underused or no longer needed. This legislation neither uplifts nor offends our liberty principles, therefore we are neutral.
