17TH CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT
They say you always remember your first. President Donald Trump last week signed into law a bill authored by Rep. Ro Khanna that is intended to help veterans gain apprenticeships.
Trump’s signature make Khanna the only Democratic freshman legislator in either the House and Senate to have a bill signed into law, according to his congressional office.
Dubbed the VALOR Act–Veteran Apprenticeship and Labor Opportunity Reform Act–HR3929, allows private employers who offer apprenticeships to veterans from registering in multiple states.
Khanna said the removal of “administration hurdles” will act as an incentive for addiontal employers to sponsor apprenticeship programs for veterans.
