Janssen Will Host Town Hall Meeting on Veterans' Issues


State Senator Charlie Janssen of Fremont, a Navy combat veteran, will host a town hall meeting in western Nebraska to discuss legislation and issues affecting military veterans and retirees.

The meeting will be held at 7:00 PM on Wednesday, October 23 at the Gosper County Senior Center, 422 Ripley Street, in Elwood.

“The legislature will discuss several bills affecting veterans next session – from license plates to taxes on retirement income,” Janssen said. “It’s very important that our veterans are informed on upcoming legislation and make their voices heard.”

Last session, Janssen introduced and prioritized LB75, which would exempt military retirement benefits from state income tax.

Janssen served two tours in the Persian Gulf with Operation Desert Storm as a search and rescue swimmer with the United States Navy. He is a member of American Legion Post 20 and Senior Vice Commander of VFW Post 854 in Fremont.
