Free property for veterans? Tammy Duckworth has a new law for that
U.S. Sen. Tammy Duckworth is hoping veterans who operate small businesses take advantage of a new law giving them access to surplus government property.
The measure that she sponsored, which was signed into law earlier this month by President Donald Trump, adds those veterans onto the list of eligible groups to get federal surplus personal property for free.
“You’d be surprised at how much stuff the federal government owns and how much it’s costing to warehouse it,” Duckworth said in a phone interview from Capitol Hill on Wednesday.
