    Notice of Meeting

    On Tuesday, April 23, 2013, the Little Hoover Commission will conduct a public hearing on veterans’ services. The hearing will begin at 9:30 a.m. in the Employment Development Department Auditorium, 722 Capitol Mall, Sacramento.

    Through its study, the Commission will examine how the state is addressing the changing needs of California’s veteran population and how agencies and organizations are providing services and linking veterans with the federal compensation, benefits and programs to which they are entitled. At this hearing, the Commission will further examine the roles and functions of the California Department of Veterans Affairs, the operation of the eight state-run veterans homes, and the role that Veterans Service Organizations and county veterans service officers play in connecting veterans with their services.

    The Commission will hear from the secretary of the California Department of Veterans Affairs as well as the chief financial officer for the department’s Veterans Homes Division. Following their testimony, the Commission will hear from representatives of the American Legion Department of California and the Veterans of Foreign Wars Department of California regarding the outreach efforts and work of their organizations. Finally, the president of the National Association of County Veterans Service Officers, who also is San Diego County’s county veterans service officer, will discuss the work of service officers in California and across the nation.

    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 Legislative Counsel Conference Room located on the lower level of 925 L Street in Sacramento.
