Assemblywoman Quijano has the utmost respect for our armed services and veterans because of the sacrifice they make to our country. She recognizes that veterans and military families often face circumstances that other people don’t usually have to confront, so her legislation for veterans is focused on making life just a little bit easier for them.
Her most recent sponsored legislation for veterans include:
- A2451 excludes Armed Services combat pay from gross income taxation. Read more here: https://www.njleg.state.nj.us/2018/Bills/A2500/2451_I1.HTM
