LEGISLATIVE TASK FORCE ON VETERAN TRANSPORTATION
 
In 2008 the Governor’s Task Force on Veterans’ Services recognized that there were gaps in transporting veterans to and from their VA medical appointments, especially wheelchair-bound veterans and veterans who live in remote and rural areas. The Legislature agreed with the Task Force recommendations to further study these issues and created a Veterans' Transportation Task Force to examine the issues and provide specific recommendations to the 2011 Legislature.
 
On October 1, 2010 the Task Force completed it's work and submitted a Final Report to the Legislature.  Click here to read the final report.
 
The Veterans’ Transportation Task Force consists of the following members:
 
  • Michael R. Ward – Chair Oregon Department of Transportation
  • Tressa Perlicheck – Department of Human Services
  • Jim Booker – Oregon Employment Department
  • BG Mike Caldwell – Oregon Military Department
  • Jim Willis – Director, Oregon Department of Veterans’ Affairs
 
For more information regarding this Task Force, please contact Tom Mann, project officer, at 503-373-2386 or tom.mann@state.or.us.
