The National Conference of State Legislatures works to bring you updated information on bills that have been introduced in the 50 states and the District of Columbia, related to military and veterans issues.
There are currently 1.2 million people serving in the armed forces, more than 20 million veterans and hundreds of military installations in the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Guam and Puerto Rico. The military operations of the United States touch every state in some way, and state legislatures are playing an important role in military issues.
You can search legislation for each year from 2010-2020 by state, topic, keyword, year, status and primary sponsor. To access information regarding initiatives and other ballot measures referred to voters on military and veterans issues, please review the Ballot Measures Database.
Bill information for the current year is updated each Tuesday. New measures are added as they are introduced or identified by NCSL staff.
Bills may appear twice in carry over states. In these states, please check the last date of action to ensure the status of the bill reflects the appropriate year.
