McCabe’s Vets Bill Signed

A bill sponsored by Washington 14th District State Representative Gina McCabe to start a campaign for businesses to increase the number of veterans employed around the state was signed by Governor Jay Inslee.  The bill by the Goldendale Republican calls for the Department of Veterans Affairs, Employment Security Department, and the Department of Commerce to consult local chambers of commerce, associate development organizations and businesses to initiate a demonstration campaign to increase veteran employment.  The campaign may include partnerships with chambers of commerce that result in business owners sharing information on the number of veterans employed with the chambers who then provide this information to DVA.  Participants in the campaign are encouraged to work with the Washington State Military Transition Council and with county veterans’ advisory boards.
