Veterans Employment and Training Programs. Report from the Committee on Veteran's Affairs (To Accompany H.R. 4087). 101st Congress, 2d Session.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Veterans' Affairs.
This document reports on a bill (H.R. 4087) to amend Title 38 of the United States Code with respect to employment and training programs for veterans. By unanimous vote, the House Committee on Veterans' Affairs recommended passage of the bill as amended by the committee. The report first lists the proposed changes in the bill and then explains its major provisions. These provisions would: (1) provide employment and training information and services to individuals serving on active duty who are within 180 days of their discharge; (2) expand the duties of the Disabled Veterans Outreach program specialists to include provision of services to persons on active duty who are within 180 days of discharge; (3) expand the duties of the Local Veterans' Employment Representatives to serve the same group; (4) extend the definition of a veteran of the Vietnam era for eligibility purposes; (5) replace a Labor Department committee with another advisory committee related to training and employment; and (6) require the advisory committee to submit a report on employment and training needs of veterans and recommendations for improvement. The report then provides background and discussion of the bill, cost estimates, the viewpoint of the Veterans' Administration, and a section-by-section analysis of the bill. (KC)
