House adopts Readshaw resolution honoring Veterans’ Courts

HARRISBURG, Dec. 19 – House Resolution 554, introduced by state Rep. Harry Readshaw, D-Allegheny, was unanimously adopted by the House on Wednesday, Dec. 17.

Readshaw explained that H.R. 554 honors the work of Pennsylvania’s 20 Veterans’ Courts.

“Pennsylvania is home to nearly 800,000 military veterans, and these brave individuals are often faced with new and unanticipated challenges when they return home from service and combat,” said Readshaw. “Those challenges range from post-traumatic stress disorder to addiction and it is our problem-solving courts that help our veterans address their challenges and ensure their well-being. It’s important that we recognize the hard work and dedication of Pennsylvania’s 20 Veterans’ Courts.”
