Local American Legion commander testifies in support of vet bill before Senate committee

Tim Adams, commander of the Alvin F. Miller American Legion Post in Richville, is pictured with Sen. Mike Green testifying before the Senate Finance Committee in support of Senate Bill 209. Introduced by Green, R-Mayville, SB 209 will establish a state sales tax exemption for fundraisers held by local veterans’ posts that benefit an active duty member of the military or a veteran. Green introduced the bill after a fundraiser organized by the Richville post for Sgt. Travis Mills was subjected to the tax.
