U.S. Reps. John Rutherford and Al Lawson, a Republican and Democrat representing Jacksonville, have joined forces on a new piece of veteran-friendly legislation.
HR 3965 — the “Veterans Armed for Success Act” — would appropriate $5M for job-related training and “transition assistance” for military veterans.
That $5M would go to eligible organizations in the form of federal matching funds, defraying up to 50 percent of costs.
