Missouri lawmakers have given final approval to House Bill 1680. This bill is focused on the hiring of our veterans. According to a statement released by Gov. Nixon more than 1,500 Missouri military veterans have been hired by Missouri businesses that have signed up for our Show-Me Heroes program.
The bill passed by the General Assembly Monday will expand the program to provide on-the-job training to veterans who have recently left military service. Show Me Heroes is a program that helps find permanent employment for veterans. The governor had called for expansion of the program during his State of the State address in January.
