Senator Mike Morrell gets the Senate to Agree with him: Let Activated THE GUARD Members Keep More of their Pay for Emergency Service.  California National Guard serves at the command of the governor, when called up during emergencies.   

Senate Bill #924, by Senator Mike Morrell (R-Rancho Cucamonga), would exempt from state income taxes income that is paid by the state to Guard Members when activated in emergency circumstances.

“Passing this legislation honors the sacrifices made by individuals who are called away from their families in times of crisis to protect our homes and property,” states the Senator.

The Bill follows the lead of states like New York, Oregon, Virginia, Florida, Illinois, Massachusetts, and Michigan, all of which offer various tax benefits to members of the Armed Forces.

Senate Bill #924 is sponsored by the National Guard Association of California, which advocates for the interests of current and past members of the State Military Department as well as its federal active duty and reserve force comrades in arms.

The measure passed with full Senate consent. It next heads to the State of California Assembly for consideration.
