Kentucky Attorney General Greg Stumbo and Chief Justice Joseph Lambert held a press conference at the Capitol Wednesday afternoon to explain how a federal law will replace the Soldiers and Sailors Civil Relief Act of 1940.
The previous act had been in place to provide Kentucky's service members with the means to handle personal, financial, and legal obligations. The new federal law, the Service Members' Civil Relief Act, was put in place in December of 2003 to provide better protections to active duty service men and women than the older act did.
Protections under the new law include reduced interest rates on debts, protection from eviction based on rent, delay of civil court actions, and reinstatement of health insurance.
