Alaska Veteran Cemetary bill goes into law

Senate Bill 45 has been signed by Governor Palin, and goes into effect 8/23/09.
An Act relating to state employment preferences for veterans, former prisoners of war, and members of the Alaska National Guard; authorizing the Department of Military and Veterans' Affairs to establish and maintain Alaska veterans' cemeteries; establishing the Alaska veterans' cemetery fund in the general fund; and authorizing the legislature to appropriate income from fees collected for commemorative veterans' plates to the Alaska veterans' cemetery fund.

No word yet on what the license plates will be like, but they'll certainly be for a good cause.
