Lawmakers to review reports on Arizona’s vets services

Arizona legislators on Wednesday will review recent reports that found some shortcomings or causes for concern in state services for military veterans.

House and Senate committees will hold a joint hearing on reports issued by the Auditor General’s Office.

One report said most donations for a fund for veteran services were used for purposes benefiting veterans. But it said that some of the spending did not directly benefit Arizona veterans. The report said legislators should consider setting rules on use of the money.

Another report said finances of Arizona’s veterans home in Phoenix and the care it provides have improved since a 2007 scandal. However, that report said the state should proceed cautiously with plans to construct additional veterans homes to make they aren’t cash-drains for taxpayers.
