Shumlin To Sign Veterans Bills

Print More

Governor Peter Shumlin will sign two bills to help Vermont veterans at a ceremony today at Camp Johnson in Colchester.

One establishes a Veterans Job Tax Credit, providing qualified employers with a tax credit for each veteran hired to a full-time position.

It also grants up to $2,000 in credits against income tax liability to a recently deployed veteran for expenses associated with a start-up business in which the veteran has at least a 50 percent interest.

The other deals with children in military families, requiring swift transfer of school records, timely placement of those changing schools and additional excused absences to spend time with deploying or recently deployed parents.
