Rubio, Klobuchar Introduce Bill to Support Veterans Re-entering Workforce

Jan 18, 2019 | Press Releases

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senators Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) introduced the Supporting Veterans in STEM Careers Act (S.153). This bill would assist veterans re-entering the workforce by directing the National Science Foundation to encourage veterans to study and pursue careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). The bill would also require the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) to establish an interagency working group to coordinate federal programs for transitioning and training veterans for STEM careers, and to develop a strategic plan to address the barriers that veterans face when reentering the workforce.
 
“Our veterans did not hesitate to answer the call to protect our great nation, and we must do everything we can to ensure that they have the skills and opportunities they need to successfully transition into the 21st century workforce,” Rubio said. “Our bill will help to identify the barriers to entry for veterans and support veterans pursuing careers in STEM.”
 
“Veterans are the teachers, engineers, scientists, and inventors who will lead us to a brighter future,” said Klobuchar. “By encouraging veterans and tapping their talents, employers can better meet their hiring needs, and veterans can enjoy the benefits of well-paying jobs in science, technology, engineering and math. This legislation will help support veterans and their families transitioning to life at home and work – benefiting veterans’ families and our whole economy.”
