Governor Jindal has announced a legislative proposal that would allow more members of the Louisiana National Guard, Louisiana Military Reserves, and their family members to qualify for funding through the Military Family Assistance Fund. Representative Henry Burns will handle the House version of the bill. Senator Robert Adley will do the same on the Senate side. The Military Family Assistance Fund was established in 2005 to help members of the Louisiana National Guard, Louisiana Military Reserves, and their family members address financial hardships they may encounter as a result of their active duty status.
