A statement from Assemblyman Dean Murray (R,C,I- East Patchogue)

“After vetoing it twice, Gov. Cuomo finally did what is right for our veterans and signed the Veterans Pension Buyback into law. This legislation allows all of our veterans who work in the public sector to purchase up to three years of credit in the state pension system.

“I’m happy that the governor has come around and done the right thing for our veterans. I cannot express the amount of gratitude I have for our veterans and this bill is the least we can do as a Legislature to help out those who served our country honorably. I’m proud to have co-sponsored this bill and look forward to keeping our veterans a priority.”
