$1M for Fort Ord Veterans Cemetery

From Phillip Molnar, local reporter for the Monterey Herald:

“A bill now sitting on Gov. Jerry Brown’s desk could free up $1 million for the proposed veterans cemetery, whose backers are scrambling to meet a key financial deadline.  The cemetery foundation needs $2.6 million by mid-October in order to prevent a major delay — or worse — in the construction schedule. The bill sponsored by state Sen. Bill Monning, D-Carmel, and Assemblyman Mark Stone, D-Scotts Valley, and others works by moving money from the state’s general fund to an endowment fund for the cemetery.”
