Veterans  Affairs committee.  It was  part of  the Title  26                                                                    
reforms, the state's military code,  which had been outdated

Currently, the  state had an  outdated system.  For example,

they had  to arrange their pay  based on the duty  they were

The bill would  streamline the system on what  the state did
