Support your Veterans please.

Quick background. Currently in the department military veterans can't buy back there military time without being in certain conflicts or in certain years etc to put it in plain terms. This bill takes out some stipulations that are outdated and basically MOS can buy back up to 3 years into our retirement system for 3% of your compensation for every year up to 3 years.  This bill that was put in front of Cuomo last week and he vetoed it on Friday right before Veterans day. My fellow brother and sisters in blue please sign this petition.


The Military Service Buyback Bill (AKA 'Veterans Equality Act'), was overwhelmingly supported by 57 (of 57) NYS Senators and 133 (of 134) NYS Assembly Members over the Summer (June/July 2014. It waited months to be called for by Governor Cuomo (before election day) only to be promptly vetoed AFTER the election and notably right BEFORE Veterans Day. 


This bill would provide all Veterans the equality they deserve and is in need of a two-thirds vote by the Assembly in order to have Governor Cuomo's veto overridden. 


Let's show Governor Cuomo that Veterans and their families are important and that we will not allow him to make fools of them by toying with their votes or underestimating their ability to enact change in spite of him.


That's why I signed a petition to The New York State House and The New York State Senate, which says:


"Override Governor Cuomo's Veto of the Veteran's Equality Act - Bill Number: S7839/A6974"
