(TRENTON) - Legislation sponsored by Assembly Democrats Troy Singleton, Daniel R. Benson, Gilbert L. "Whip" Wilson, Angel Fuentes and Annette Quijano that would allow New Jersey residents to make a voluntary donation on their gross income tax return to support homeless veterans was released Thursday by an Assembly panel.
"We cannot be indifferent to the plight of these brave men and women, who did what their duty required and fought for our country and our freedoms while their own lives suffered," said Singleton (D-Burlington). "If every individual in the state gave a dollar, the term 'homeless veteran' might no longer be applicable in New Jersey."
