Veterans Restorative Justice Act needs to pass

On Monday, July 20th, 2020, Veterans were let down by the Minnesota Legislators when they did not pass the Veterans Restorative Justice Act. However, it is believed that this will come back up during a third special session sometime around August 13th, 2020. It is time for all Veterans and all those that support Veterans to get the word out to our leaders that this bill must pass. The time is now to contact your legislators in Minnesota and let them know that you support the Veterans Restorative Justice Act.
