Remarks by Governor Torres to Legislature regarding House Joint Resolution 21-08

The spirit behind House Joint Resolution 21-008 is indeed noble in its intents. It is my understanding from the discussions that took place during the House Standing Committee on Federal & Foreign Affairs meetings that such measure evolved with the intent to initiate dialogue about military activities in the Commonwealth between my Administration and the Legislature. I write to you in effort to share with the members of the Legislature that I share in this interest and have been proactive in pursuing the espoused goals of HJR 21-008 for nearly the entire duration of my time in the Executive Branch. Truly it is one of the most critical responsibilities I have taken.
