A Valley veteran will once again make his way to Sacramento Wednesday. He's backing a new bill, which could secure funding for the long-awaited Fresno Veterans home. The 27-acre spread is located on Marks and California in Southwest Fresno. The new home is slated to open this year, but the Governor's proposed budget will likely push the opening back until 2014.
