Senator Gillibrand Heading Veteran Employment Legislation
Senator Kirsten Gillibrand is spearheading legislation that would help young military veterans with employment. Gillibrand announced over the weekend that this bipartisan legislation is needed to help provide education and job training for young veterans, and streamline the certification processes for civilian jobs. Last year Gillibrand helped pass the VOW To Hire Heroes Act, ensuring that all troops returning from Iraq and Afghanistan have the necessary tools for a seamless transition from military service to the civilian workforce.
