SACRAMENTO - Veterans and those in the military will receive more state benefits, including help with education, finances and even fishing licenses, under 18 bills signed into law Thursday by Gov. Jerry Brown. Brown noted that the measures were sponsored and supported by members of both major political parties, and he used the occasion to take a jab at Congress.
