Tucker, Johnson, Holley & DeAngelo Legislation to Facilitate Relocation for Military Families Clears General AssemblyLegislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Cleopatra Tucker, Gordon Johnson, Jamel Holley and Wayne DeAngelo to help provide military families with more flexibility regarding the use of their housing allowance when they receive orders to relocate gained the approval of the General Assembly on Thursday.
"Oftentimes service in the military requires members to relocate with little or no prior notice, which puts a great deal of stress on military families," said Tucker (D-Essex). "By minimizing disruption to the lives of service members' spouses and children, this legislation will ensure that members can balance their commitments to both the military and their families."
DeAngelo, Pinkin, Tucker, Andrzejczak, Conaway & Land Bills to Fortify NJ Military Installations Gain Assembly OKLegislation Incorporates Recommendations from July 2015 Task Force Report
Two bills Assembly Democrats Wayne P. DeAngelo, Nancy Pinkin, Cleopatra Tucker, Bob Andrzejczak, Herb Conaway, Jr. and Bruce Land sponsored to fortify New Jersey's five military installations gained approval from the General Assembly on Thursday.
"Our military installations clearly play an important role when it comes to national defense, but when you consider the thousands of jobs tied to the military, the businesses that support the installations and the billions of dollars in revenue that the installations generate, the local economic significance of New Jersey's military installations is irrefutable," said DeAngelo (D-Mercer/Middlesex). "Any legislation that supports our installations, therefore, will have a positive impact on our state as a whole."
