Iowa's helping Veterans as they return home

Posted:

Iowa lawmakers have approved legislation that would help veterans transition into life after military service.

Members of the House Veterans Affairs Committee unanimously approved three bills Monday that would help veterans more easily obtain occupational licenses or own a home. The first bill would appropriate $2 million for research on how military skills apply to existing occupational license requirements. The second bill would give credit to veterans for those skills when trying to obtain a license. The third bill would increase the current appropriation for the Military Homeownership Assistance Program.

The bills are now up for debate on the House floor.
