Senator Rubio Co-Sponsors Bill To Help Veterans & Military Families Transition To Civilian Life

Mar 29, 2012 | Press Releases

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) today joined Senators John Boozman (R-AR) and Mark Begich (D-AK) as an original co-sponsor to the Transition Assistance Program (TAP) Modernization Act of 2012.   The Transition Assistance Program (TAP) would be a pilot program to assist veterans and military families with job training as they transition into civilian life after serving their country.  It would be targeted in states with the highest level of veteran unemployment to evaluate the results before taking the program to a national level.

“We should do everything possible to honor the men and women who have served our country,” said Rubio. “This legislation not only honors our veterans, but also their families who sacrifice so much when they are overseas. I am proud to work with Senators Boozman and Begich to ensure our veterans and military families are helped with job training as they transition into civilian life.”

This bill will require the Secretary of Labor to provide TAP under title 10, U.S.C., section 1144 (10 U.S.C. 1144) “to eligible individuals at locations other than military installations in not less than three and not more than five States selected by the Secretary” during the three year period beginning on the date of the enactment of this bill.
