Sacramento, CA — A bill authored by Mother Lode Republican Senator Tom Berryhill that would ease construction costs for disabled veterans has cleared a committee test.
SB 330 would allow local governments to waive building permit fees for home improvements related to veterans’ service connected disabilities. It gained needed approval yesterday in the Senate Transportation and Housing Committee.
Berryhill states, “They gave so much for our freedom. This modest and important gesture is the least we can do.”
SB 330 now heads to the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee for review. It is backed by groups including the California Building Industry Association, Vietnam Veterans of America-California State Council, American Legion Department of California and several others.
