RICHMOND, Virginia: Governor Bob McDonnell signed into law a constitutional amendment that will be placed on the November 2, 2010 ballot in the Commonwealth of Virginia to exempt veterans from property taxes[1].

House Bill 149 and Senate Bill 31 was signed into law on April 29, 2010. The amendment will ask the voters of Virginia if they will approve or reject a property tax exemption for a armed forces veteran or their surviving spouse if the veteran had a 100 percent permanent and total disability related to military service.

The House version of the bill passed unanimously on a 99-0 vote on February 15, 2010, and passed the Virginia State Senate on a 39-0 vote on February 26, 2010[2]. The constitutional amendment was signed as part of 27 total pieces of legislation the Governor approved to improve services to veterans and their families in Virgina[1].

The measure is one of two measures that will be considered this November on property tax relief. Governor McDonnell signed a constitutional amendment on April 11, 2010 to ask voters to approve or deny a measure providing property tax relief for seniors 65 or older[3].
