SPRINGFIELD – Spouses and children of veterans and active duty service members will soon be able to take advantage of the military service discount program under a law passed by State Senator Scott Bennett.

Bennett (D-Champaign) sponsored Senate Bill 1468 to expand the eligibility for voluntary discount programs currently offered by businesses to veterans and military personnel to include spouses and dependents.

“When our veterans serve, we must not forget that their families are also sacrificing every day that their loved one must forego with them in order to wear the uniform,” Bennett said. “Enhancing this discount program to include their families honors the commitment that our brave servicemen and women and their families make to our country.”

The governor signed the bill into law last week. It takes effect immediately.
