(TRENTON) - Legislation sponsored by Paul Moriarty (D-Camden/Gloucester) authorizing the creation of special license plates to support transitional housing programs serving New Jersey's homeless veterans was approved Monday by an Assembly committee.
"New Jersey has among its homeless population an estimated 7,000 to 8,000 veterans. This is a travesty," said Moriarty. "These men and women put their lives on the line to protect our country. They deserve better. These license plates not only honor their sacrifice, but would provide these facilities with additional funds to continue their work with veterans who have fallen on hard times."
The bill (A-3283) would authorize a special "Support Our Veterans" license plate with the proceeds supporting New Jersey homeless veteran's centers, Veterans Haven, North and South.
