Legislation sponsored by Sen. Joe Fain to strengthen consumer protections for active-duty military and their families and reduce costs for disabled veterans to add adaptive equipment to their vehicles was recently signed by Gov. Jay Inslee.
New legislation allowing service members to cancel or suspend a service contract because of deployment or move Thursday passed the state Senate.
“Veterans offer unique skills and leadership abilities that translate directly into a variety of jobs in our state,” said Washington Sen. Joe Fain, R-Auburn... “With veterans doing so much for our country it is also our responsibility to help them build a bridge back to civilian life.”
