Department of Labor Employment and Training Programs, and H.R. 4087. Hearing before the Subcommittee on Education, Training and Employment of the Committee on Veterans' Affairs, House of Representatives, One Hundred First Congress, Second Session.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Veterans' Affairs.
This document is a transcript of oral and written testimony given by witnesses at a Congressional hearing that examined veterans' employment and training programs administered by the Department of Labor, and H.R. 4087, a bill to amend certain aspects of those programs. (H.R. 4087 aims to make employment counseling available to veterans and to extend the eligibility for Vietnam-era veterans.) Witnesses included the Assistant Secretary of Labor for Veterans' Employment and Training, officials of various veterans' associations and organizations (such as the American Legion and Vietnam Veterans of America), and state officials. The Assistant Secretary of Labor testified that the bill would be redundant and too costly. He also suggested changes in existing programs to permit the Department of Labor to conduct further studies of funding and permanency of programs. A representative from New York described the veterans' programs being conducted in that state and asked for implementation of H.R. 4087 in order to continue those programs. Most of the veterans' representatives supported the proposed legislation, with modifications. (KC)
