STATE HOUSE – Representative Robert Quattrocchi (R-District 41 Scituate, Cranston), has introduced legislation (H-6073), which would permit the town of Scituate to provide a tax credit to 100% disabled veterans in lieu of a tax exemption, in an amount to be determined by the town council.
“I believe wholeheartedly in reducing the tax burden on our veterans,” Quattrocchi said. “Those who fought in the military to preserve the rights and liberties we deserve today, deserve this tax break, more than anyone. I would like to see this bill pass to show our veterans we honor their service.”
The town of Scituate has approximately 17 disabled veterans.
“I am a big supporter of our veterans. I feel that they are very proud people, they don’t need a hand out, but could use a hand up,” added Rep. Quattrocchi.
He added, “There is talk of funding for those that are here in our state illegally, we should be providing for our veterans, first and foremost. Our veterans should always be coming first.”
Representative Quattrocchi sits on the House Committee on Finance and the House Committee on Small Business.
