House Bill Calls for More Transition TrainingFebruary 9, 2018 |

Lawmakers on Capitol Hill want service members to get more training for civilian life before transitioning out of the military.
Legislation introduced in the House of Representatives this week seeks to boost participation in specialized workshops offered through the Defense Department’s Transition Assistance Program, or TAP. The bill, introduced by Rep. Stephanie Murphy, D-Fla., would require service members to opt out of the additional training provided in addition to the program’s core curriculum, rather than opt in.
