JOE ROBACH ANNOUNCES GOVERNOR SIGNATURE ON LEGISLATION TO CONTINUE STATE’S EFFORTS TO HELP RETURNING VETERANS FIND EMPLOYMENT

Joe Robach announced that the Governor recently signed legislation that will continue the state’s efforts to assist returning veterans in finding employment.

The new law, supported by Joe Robach, requires the establishment of an employment portal on the Division of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) website that will include links to appropriate federal and state governmental programs that assist veterans in obtaining employment.

The employment portal on the DVA website will provide information regarding resources that are available to assist veterans in finding jobs, including governmental programs on the federal and state level and links to resources available through the federal and state labor departments. To ensure the portal successfully serves veterans, DVA will consult with members of the community devoted to helping veterans obtain employment.

This legislation continues the work of the Governor, the Legislature and Joe Robach to ensure that veterans’ valuable and specialized military experience is recognized when they transition to the civilian workforce.  This new law is critically important as it will assist our veterans find jobs so to provide for their families and themselves. The creation of a veteran’s job bank in New York State will help the American heroes who have so bravely fought to defend our Nation in this time of war. Our government must support these men and women as best as possible, for these soldiers have made sure that we remain a safe and free nation.
