Celebrating National Military Appreciation Month

Kelly Seyarto Assemblymember, 67th District There is no way to pay back the sacrifices made by our veteran heroes and their families, but in Sacramento, we should do all we can to ensure their commitment to our country has not gone unnoticed or unappreciated. Here are just a few of the bills I am proud to write and co-write. After the death of a military service member, benefits received by widows and orphans from Survivor Benefit Plans are considered a taxable income source. Assembly Bill 1629  would make the first $20,000 of payments from SBP tax-exempt each year in California.
