HB 1736 -- Veterans' Bonus

Co-Sponsors:  Reynolds, Ransdall

This bill requires the state to pay a $25 per month bonus for
each month of active duty for which campaign ribbons were
awarded to all honorably discharged veterans who served during
World War I, World War II, the Korean Conflict, the Vietnam
Conflict, or the Persian Gulf War.  If the veteran is deceased,
the bonus must be paid to certain surviving family members of
the veteran.  The bonus may not exceed $500 less any bonus
amount that was paid to a World War I veteran.  Persons
receiving this bonus must have been a legal resident of the
state at the time of entering military service.  The bonus may
not be paid if the person has received a bonus from any other
state, is incarcerated for conviction of a felony while
performing military service, or violated the Selective Service
Act.  No bonus is taxable or subject to the claim of any
creditor.

Funding of the veterans' bonus will come from the Veterans'
Commission Capital Improvements Trust Fund and is subject to
appropriation.
