Persian Gulf Bonus Program
On April 24, 2006, House Bill 1820 was signed into law as Act 29 of 2006. This Bill established the Persian Gulf Conflict Veterans Benefit Act. On Nov. 7, 2006, Pennsylvania voters gave overwhelming approval to a ballot question to fund the program. The bond issue created a fund for the payment of compensation to, or on behalf of, eligible current and former members of the United States Armed Forces, a reserve component of the United States Armed Forces, or the Pennsylvania National Guard. On Oct. 30, 2015 ACT 29 was amended through the enactment of Act 50 extending the application period to Aug. 31, 2018.
