Orange county board of supervisors slams disabled veterans
orange county california August 14, 2007 Supervisor John Moorlach has said NO to Full Mandatory Funding for Veterans Affairs. Operation Firing For Effect is a Veterans Advocacy Group that wants to have Full Mandatory Funding for Veterans Affairs put on the election ballot for 2008. Board of Supervisor John Moorlach has reviewed OFFE Resolution August 14, 2006 and said.”Orange County Board of Supervisors will not pursue Full Mandatory Funding Resolution at this time” “This is a federal issue and Orange County Board of Supervisors has a policy to stay away from federal issues"
Orange County Board of Supervisors could have taken a position to support all those that serve in Armed Services past, present and future with the stroke of a pen by recommending that this question be put on the election ballot of 2008 to the voters of Orange County, California. The question that would appear on the ballot is:
“Shall the federal government be required to adopt full mandatory funding of the Department of Veterans Affairs for the purpose of ensuring that all eligible honorably discharged U.S. veterans receive quality and accessible healthcare and services?”
Orange County Veterans Advisory Council has been presented Operation Firing For Effect Resolution on August 8, 2007 for their Board of Directors to vote on Full Mandatory Healthcare Funding. This Veterans Advisory Council is appointed by the Orange County Board of Supervisors. Once they vote on Full Mandatory Healthcare Funding for Veterans Affairs on September 12, 2007 at OC Veterans Advisory Council board meeting could change the direction of O.C. Board of Supervisors decision to support Mandatory Full Funding for Veterans Affairs.
OFFE also presented a Resolution to State of California Veterans Affairs, California Veterans Board to their Laguna Hills Board meeting August 10, 2007 and Chairman Chong and his Board of Directors were asked to make a Resolution to approve Full Mandatory Funding for Veterans Affairs and they will consider a vote possibly October 18, or 19 in their next Board Meeting in Sacramento, California.
