2020 VFW Legislative Priorities

End Veteran Homelessness

No man or woman who served their country should be left without a place to call home.  The VA estimates that on any given night, 300 Minnesota Veterans are homeless.

Ending the Widows Tax

Veterans who are 100% disabled are exempted from Minnesota property taxes.  But when that Veteran passes away, the exemption passes with them.  We feel the property tax exemption should stay in place with the surviving spouse as long as they live in the same home.

Veterans Treatment Courts

Serving in the military, especially in combat, has a lasting effect.  Veterans Courts consider those effects, as well as the individual‘s service to their country, in an effort to rehabilitate Veterans.
