SANTA FE (KRQE) – New Mexico veterans are getting more help from the state thanks to a new bill.
The governor signed a set of bills into law on Friday. Each of these bills will help vets in different ways.
Here are the outcomes of each bill:
- One will allow disabled vets to transfer their property tax exemption to a new home.
- Another provides a 50 percent discount on hunting or fishing licenses.
- One brings the state into compliance with federal G.I. Bill guidelines so veterans’ families can receive in-state tuition.
- Another allows New Mexico military personnel deployed overseas to receive assistance for their family funded through income tax donations. It provides things like food and clothing.
