Veterans Employment Transition Act

A bill sponsored by Senator Max Baucus of Montana, called the Veterans Employment Transition Act, would provide tax credits of $2,400 for every Veteran who was been out of the military for less than 5 years.

The motivation behind the bill is the evidence that Veterans returning from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are having trouble finding employment. Senator Braucus, whose nephew died in Iraq, sponsored a similar bill last year, but it never came up for a vote. He is hoping that the worsening plight of returning Veterans will propel other members of Congress to act.
