On Monday, August 28, 2017, Rep. Michael Meredith (fourth from right) joined Governor Matt Bevin (center) as the governor signed a measure committing $10.5 million in matching state bonding funds for a veterans’ nursing home in Bowling Green.
House Bill 13, sponsored by Rep. Meredith, R-Brownsville, is a necessary step for the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to begin construction on the much-needed 90-bed facility, which will serve 17 counties in southcentral Kentucky.
"As I've said from the very beginning stages of this bill, it's an honor to be part of this because our veterans deserve the very best care and help possible," said Rep. Meredith. "We're happy to be moving forward with this and we hope to be able to discuss a more finalized portion of the project this fall."
