Additionally, I have co-sponsored bills to aid our military personnel: House Bill 1413 provides for the designated appointment of a veteran of the armed forces to the state personnel commission; House Bill 1414 would revise the law providing for creditable service in the teachers' and state employees' retirement system for members who served in the armed forces of the united states; and House Bill 1415 would insure that a member of the teachers' and state employees' retirement system shall not be denied short-term disability benefits due to an absence for military service.

House Bill 1358, which I sponsored, will establish the Consumer Health Freedom Act for Complementary and Alternative Forms of Health Care Services and facilitate access to alternative health care services.

I am pleased that so many of you feel free to contact me to let me know how you feel about the issues that are being debated by the North Carolina General Assembly and the challenges you and your family are facing each day. By continuing to work together, we can make a difference in Guilford County and all regions of North Carolina, to provide a better place to live, work, and raise a family.
