    Notice of Meeting

    On Tuesday, January 22, 2013, the Little Hoover Commission will conduct a public hearing on veterans’ services. The hearing will begin at 9 a.m. in Room 2040 of the State Capitol in Sacramento.

    The Commission seeks to determine whether existing state programs are appropriately aligned with veterans’ current needs and whether organizations and agencies serving veterans are equipped to connect them to the benefits for which they are eligible. The Commission will review benefits and programs available to veterans and the ways in which state, county and community organizations conduct outreach. The Commission also will examine similar programs that the California Military Department administers for its National Guard members, and the ways in which these programs help to ensure the state’s readiness for emergencies.

    On January 22, the Commission will hear from officials at the California Department of Veterans Affairs, who will discuss the state’s role in providing services to veterans. The Commission also will hear from representatives of the California Association of Veteran Service Agencies and the Vietnam Veterans of California, Inc. The two panelists will provide an overview of the current needs of veterans. The director of veteran services for Solano County will discuss services provided by local agencies. Finally, the Commission will hear from a panel of high-ranking officials from the California Military Department who will discuss the services offered to active members in the National Guard and how needs are targeted to ensure readiness.

    There will be an opportunity for public comment at the end of the hearing. The Commission also encourages written comments.

    Immediately following the hearing, the Commission will hold a business meeting in the Legislative Counsel Conference Room located on the lower level of 925 L Street in Sacramento.
