“It’s been a very, very exciting day,” Quick-Silva told the city news service. “There’s a lot of emotion. We’ve been working on this for almost 10 years. A huge thank you to the governor who signed this bill and everyone who helped us get there, but first and foremost the veterans who have worked on this for a long time.”
