This year, the Republican-led House has been focused on jobs – including jobs for America’s veterans. The VOW Act is one of the 22 House-passed bipartisan jobs bills and hopefully the Senate will act today so we can help get Americans back to work.
House Republicans Have Taken The Lead On Helping Our Veterans Find Jobs:
- July 7, 2011: Rep. Jeff Miller, Chairman of the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs introduced the VOW Act (H.R. 2433), addressing the root problems our veterans face in today’s job market – training and skills to compete.
- September 16, 2011: The House Leadership highlighted veterans as an area where the House and the White House could find common ground in the American Jobs Act.
- October 12, 2011: The House passed the Vow Act with overwhelming bipartisan support 418-6
- October 25, 2011: Speaker Boehner renewed the House’s commitment to helping America’s veterans and called on Senate Democrats to act on the VOW Act.
