U.S. Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-FL) has put forth a bipartisan measure to better help separating active-duty military personnel get back into the swing of civilian life and work.
Rep. Curbelo on Feb. 6 introduced the Better Access to Technical Training, Learning, and Entrepreneurship for Servicemembers Act, or the BATTLE for Servicemembers Act, H.R. 4954, along with U.S. Rep. Stephanie Murphy (D-FL). The bill aims to prepare military personnel who are leaving the service ranks by increasing their awareness of and participation in U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) Transition Assistance Program (TAP) courses.
