2. Support the Cochise College Small Business Development Center to provide business opportunities and education through the Veterans Business Outreach Center at Cochise College to military members and veterans in Arizona.
3. Increase the Arizona State Tax Exemption for Retired Military Personnel. Help support HB2011 and SB1157.
