TUCSON -- I'm proud to announce, as a pro-veteran lawmaker and member of the Arizona House Military Affairs Committee, the Tucson Veterans Home was approved today by Arizona's Joint Committee on Capital Review.

The $29M veterans home in LD29 near the VA hospital will serve and house 120-200 needy veterans in southern Arizona.

The 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act expedited a federal grant essential to project approval. Arizona received funding from the federal VA for 65% of the new construction cost of the facility.
