Veterans Hiring Measure Passes the Tennessee House of Representatives

 

Written by Joe Pitts
Tennessee State Representative

Tennessee State Representative - District 67Nashville, TN – Hiring Preferences for Veterans – House Bill 165/Senate Bill 209 (Senator Mark Green, R-Clarksville) passed the Senate and House of Representatives and was sent to the Governor for his signature on March 20th.

To paraphrase an old saying, the second time is the charm, or something like that.  House Bill 165 and Senate bill 209 recently passed the House and Senate after the second attempt. The proposal would enable private employers to create hiring preferences for veterans, their spouses, and surviving spouses of deceased veterans without running afoul of provisions in the 1964 Civil Rights Act prohibiting hiring discrimination among other areas.
