Assembly Bill 46

Legislative Affairs

Skip Phair

On December 5, 2022, the new California Legislature for 2023-2024 was sworn in.  Almost a third are newly elected to state office. The bills that we had been following are gone. This session comes with fresh proposals.  Many of which will be presented in new bills that were introduced last week and continuing until the end of January.

 

On the first day of the new term Assembly Member James Ramos introduced this term’s attempt to exempt military retirement and surviving spouse benefits from California state taxes, Assembly Bill 46.  Success for this benefit will depend upon broad support in the California Senate, Assembly, and Governor Gavin Newsom.  The chapter will be encouraging actions over the next several months to make this happen.

 

The US Congress is still trying to pass a budget for Fiscal Year 23.  As of this publication, the Department of Defense and the Federal Government is still operating on week to week continuing resolutions. With the change in party leadership in the House, priorities for the next year will significantly change, especially in fiscal matters. You are encouraged to pay close attention to the monthly legislative issues provided in this newsletter as well as the MOAA Newsletter.  Of recent concern are the recommendations of the congressional budget Office for actions to reduce the deficit. These include:

  • Introduce Enrollment Fees for TRICARE For Life
  • Introduce Minimum Out-of-Pocket Requirements in TRICARE For Life
  • Means-Test VA Disability Compensation for Veterans with Higher Income
  • End VA’s Individual Unemployability Payments to Disabled Veterans at the Full Retirement Age for Social Security
  • Reduce VA’s Disability Benefits for Veterans Who Are Older Than the Full Retirement Age for Social Security
  • Narrow Eligibility for VA’s Disability Compensation by Excluding Veterans With Low Disability Ratings
  • Use an Alternative Measure of Inflation to Index Social Security and Other Mandatory Programs

 

We need your support in pushing out the information on Assembly Bill 46
