This bill would broaden the eligibility for the veterans' property tax deduction and the veterans' property tax exemption by eliminating the requirement that a veteran serve during specific wars or other periods of emergency, and, in certain instances, that a veteran serve in a war zone. Instead of service during specific dates or in specific locations, the bill requires a veteran to serve for at least 90 days, exclusive of certain types of initial training, in order to be eligible for any of the primary veterans' benefits. Alternatively, the bill requires a veteran of a reserve component of the United States Armed Forces (including the National Guard) to serve the entire period to which called to federal active service, exclusive of training, in order to be eligible for the primary veterans' benefits. A veteran who is discharged as the result of a service-connected disability will be eligible even if the veteran has not completed the 90 days' service or the period to which called to federal active service. Eligibility for the property tax deduction and the property tax exemption are contingent upon voter approval of an authorizing amendment to the State Constitution.
