Continuing to Take Care of Our Veterans

Providing for our Veterans has always been one of my top legislative priorities. Last Tuesday, the House made it easier for employers to hire veterans by passing H.R.22 by a vote of 412-0. This legislation would allow employers to hire veterans who receive health coverage with the Department of Defense or the Veterans Affairs Administration while being able to exclude them in their count in taking into account the Obamacare employer mandate. Simply put, this legislation makes it easier for small businesses to hire our veterans with respects Obamacare’s job crippling regulations. I am proud that the whole House came together in a bipartisan manner to support this bill. I urge you to contact our Senators and urge them to push this common sense legislation through the Senate so that it can be placed on the desk of the President and signed into law.
