Among the measures approved during the upper chamber’s voting session were two bills sponsored by Sen. Diane Allen, R-7th of Edgewater Park. They seek to extend a free college tuition benefit to military reservists and allow towns to award property tax breaks to seniors who perform volunteer work for municipal governments.
