Veterans Preference Bill passes Senate, heads to Governor

The Senate today (4-4-18) substituted an amended version of HB2006 for SB2192 and passed the bill.

This legislation clarifies that a hiring preference for a state service position must be given to a veteran on the list of eligible candidates if such veteran’s qualifications for the position are equal to another candidate’s qualifications.

The House passed HB2006 on March 22, 2018. The bill now heads to the Governor for his signature.

We appreciate all the effort and time put into this important legislation by Rep. Joe Pitts, Sen. Jon Lundberg, and many others along the way.
