SACRAMENTO – Assemblywoman Sharon Quirk-Silva’s (D-Fullerton) Assembly Bill (AB) 1453, a bill that would establish a veterans cemetery in Orange County, passed with unanimous support in the State Assembly Veterans Affairs committee.
“Orange County’s Veterans and their families deserve an accessible location to celebrate the life and contributions of the brave men and women who have courageously served our nation. In addition to the positive outcome today, we have gathered outpouring support from 15 Orange County cities, endorsements from veteran community stakeholders and over 2,000 constituents have contacted our office in support of this project. These are all signs that we must continue to advocate toward finding a final resting place, close to home, for our country’s heroes,” stated Assemblywoman Quirk-Silva.
