Rome, NY – Standing with student veterans at Mohawk Valley Community College’s Aviation Maintenance Training Center, U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, will announce bipartisan legislation to help provide education and job training for young veterans and streamline certification processes for civilian jobs.

Last year, Senator Gillibrand hosted a roundtable with local business and veterans leaders to discuss innovative ways to address veterans’ unemployment in the Mohawk Valley. Now Senator Gillibrand is working on legislation that would make training more accessible, protect veterans’ access to education, and ease hiring processes for veterans.
