(MPRN-Lansing) Changes could be in store for Michigan’s veterans’ services. A House and Senate joint committee heard testimony Monday about a package of bills that would create a new Michigan Veterans’ Facility Authority.
Legislative action continues after a state audit found multiple issues at a Grand Rapids veterans’ home. The bill adds legislative oversight to veteran homes operated by the state. It passed the House this summer and is up for a Senate committee vote this week.
Actor, writer and Marine Veteran Benjamin Busch says people who serve in the military come from different backgrounds and have different experiences while they serve. But he says that’s not always the public perception.
