LANSING (WKZO) -- A State House committee this week approved the allocation of three million dollars for the creation of a Veterans Service Delivery initiative. The plan is to set up a central hub where Michigan Veterans can efficiently search for benefits and be connected to them.

State Representative Nancy Jenkins says it's time that lawmakers make it a little easier for vets.The information hub being created would be set up with help from the new state veterans service agency. The plan was included in a funding bill passed by the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Military and Veterans Affairs.
