Lamborn Praises Veterans Employment Bills
Yesterday, the House passed a series of bills regarding veterans, including H.R. 512, the WINGMAN Act; H.R. 244, the HIRE Vets Act; and H.R 974, the Boosting Rates of American Veteran Employment Act.
Congressman Lamborn released the following statement regarding a package of bills that will benefit veterans across the country:
"I am pleased that Congress has prioritized giving back to our nation's servicemembers. These three bills will recognize and reward employers who recruit, hire, and train veterans for employment, and they will also give priority to VA contractors with veterans on their teams. In addition, this legislation will give caseworkers, including those in my Colorado Springs office, read-only access to veterans' information when caseworkers advocate on the veteran's behalf. These bills will improve jobs and benefits access for our brave veterans, and I applaud their passage in the House."
