Relating to designating the 11th day of each month as Buddy Check Day.
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
SB 460 would designate the 11th day of each month as Buddy Check Day to encourage veterans to reach out to other veterans who may need assistance. The bill would also allow the Texas Veterans Commission to promote assistance and other services available to veterans while promoting education and awareness of veterans issues on Buddy Check Day. The purpose of this bill is to help promote veteran connectedness and reduce rates of veteran suicide.
Texas Action is neutral on SB 460 as it does not directly connect to our liberty principles.
