Legislation sponsored by Senator Christopher Connors, Assemblyman Brian Rumpf and Assemblywoman DiAnne Gove which would extend the current disabled veteran’s property tax exemption to disabled veteran shareholders and their surviving spouses residing in a cooperative or mutual housing corporation was approved by the Assembly Military and Veterans’ Affairs Committee on March 15.

The full State Senate passed S-956 in July 30 of last year unanimously.

The 9th District Delegation issued the following statement regarding the advancement of their veterans’ legislative initiative (S-956/A-911):

“Corrective action is necessary to amend existing law. Disabled veterans shareholders and their surviving spouses residing in a cooperative or mutual housing corporation that is their legal residence should be eligible to receive the disabled veteran’s property tax exemption.

“These veterans are being denied eligibility due to a legal technicality which defines housing. Under current law, in or order to receive a disabled veterans permanent residence must be a condominium, one-family, or multifamily home.

“As demonstrated by the Senate’s unanimous vote of support and the bipartisan sponsorship our legislation enjoys from members of both Legislative Houses, it is only appropriate and fair to amend existing law so those impacted disabled veterans are finally eligible to receive this form of property tax relief. These disabled veterans deserve nothing less in view of their sacrifice and service to our nation.”

To more effectively represent the interests of their constituents, members of the 9th Legislative District have served, respectively, on the Senate and Assembly Military and Veterans’ Affairs Committees for several consecutive legislative sessions.
