Veterans’ state hiring preferences passes Senate

Seeking to help the brave men and women who served their country with honor, the Senate unanimously passed legislation that would extend veteran hiring preference rules to veterans of the National Guard and reservists.

House Bill 3261 states that members of the Illinois National Guard and reserve components of the United States Armed Forces shall qualify for the veteran hiring preference rules, if they served a minimum of four years in that role, regardless of whether they were mobilized to active duty.
