Biddeford lawmaker among veterans group’s lawmakers of the year
AUGUSTA – The American Legion named Rep. Martin Grohman among its Legislators of the Year at a ceremony held Thursday evening.
“Maine veterans have given so much to our state and our nation,” said Grohman, D-Biddeford. “The least we can do to thank them is to make sure they don’t fall through the cracks if they need help.”
Some of Grohman’s votes on behalf of veterans include:
- A measure to invest in the Bureau of Veteran’s Services to improve the delivery of services.
- Granting a sales tax exemption to veterans’ organizations that support veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder.
- Creation of a program to help student veterans transition from military to student life.
The ceremony was held at the American Legion Post 26 in Biddeford.
