Grassroots Effort...

Once again Keystone Soldiers is on the front line of advocacy for our troops and their families. Keystone attended a meeting in Harrisburg yesterday pertaining to a "Family Support license plate for Pennsylvania" and the 'Military Family Releif Bill'.

There is still no word on local news, but you can go to Keystone’s site and read about it. You can also go to Operation Jump Start and order plates.

There are 14 other states that have similar programs (and 22 considering the proposal).
States where Governors have passed and signed the bill:
ME, VT, RI, DE, SC, GA, MI, IL, AR, KS, WY, ID, AZ, CA
Military Family Relief Bill has been introduced and being considered in these states:
PA, NY, MA, CT, NJ, MD, WV, FL, OH, IN, AL, MS, LA, MN, WI, IA, MO, OK, CO, NM, OR, HI
HERE is an article about this from the DOD.
Find out what you can do to move this along in your State! (...and you can look up "Military Family Relief Bill" for your State)
