Senator Bass Comments on Passage of the Governor’s Operation Home Front Initiative

The Senate Chairman of the Military and Veterans Affairs Committee praised final passage of Senate Bill 821 on Monday. Senator Randy Bass, a Democrat from Lawton and Senate author of the measure, said the legislation will provide a $250,000 life insurance policy for members of the Oklahoma National Guard.

“Passage of this bill means Oklahoma guardsmen will be able to provide greater financial security for their families when they are called upon to put their lives on the line in defense of our nation and freedom around the globe,” Bass said.

Bass said Senate Bill 821 is part of Governor Brad Henry’s Operation Home Front Initiative, which was unveiled at the beginning of session during the Governor’s annual State of the State Address.

“We must honor those who serve our country and so I was honored to carry this legislation through the Senate,” Bass said. “This measure will give our troops peace of mind by ensuring if something happens to them while they defend our freedom, Oklahoma is committed to taking care of the families back home.”
