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.
