McCain agrees to drop veterans hiring preference changes from NDAA
from Military Times
Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain told veterans groups that he'll oppose controversial plans to limit federal hiring preferences for individuals with military experience, an advantage advocates argue is critical in helping them find employment. Earlier this year, Senate lawmakers approved a draft of the annual defense authorization bill, which included limiting veterans preference in federal hiring procedures to a one-time use. Veterans who applied for a second federal job or a transfer from their first position would be evaluated by hiring officials as just another civilian federal worker under the plan.
