Bill Number Bill Description Bill Status
HB 322
Good Policy
Veterans; establish a permissive preference in private employment for certain veterans. Alive
Analysis: This bill protects businesses who wish to give preference to honorably discharged veterans, unremarried widows of deceased honorably discharged veterans who died in the line of duty, and spouses of people with total disabilities when hiring. As a general rule the government should not be regulating who private businesses should or should not hire. However, businesses being allowed to give preference to a certain group of potential employees is integral to their freedom and this bill protects that albeit under a narrow set of circumstances.
