Task Forces on Veterans' Issues Complete Work
Press Release
October 1, 2010
SALEM – Turning in their final reports to the Oregon Legislature today, three legislative task forces on veterans’ issues completed their work on Women Veterans’ Health Care, Veterans’ Reintegration and Veterans’ Transportation.
Each report includes task force findings and recommendations that address these issues, as well as detailed information regarding each topic.  The 2009 Legislature commissioned the three task forces as part of the recommendations forwarded by the 2008 Governor’s Task Force on Veterans’ Services, which felt these three subject areas needed closer examination.
Each task force testified before the Joint House and Senate Interim Veterans Committee on September 23 and delivered their executive summaries, including findings and recommendations.
The task forces will continue to work with the Legislature, Oregon’s Congressional delegation, the federal Veterans Administration and other partners to implement their recommendations during the next biennium.
