There are already many veterans bills at the federal level and laws on the books to help the reintegration of vets, the problem of not disclosing veteran benefits is an internal problem when veterans are discharged from service or active duty or change of status.

This bill duplicates current laws and just a cover-up of governors office withholding veteran information and funds from national guard soldiers and veterans.

This law is an attempt to put state taxpayers on the hook for the funding, laws, and regulations that the federal government gives the governor from federal budget to operate and maintain a National Guard.

As a vet I know what entitlements we have and this bill is an insult to Utah veterans and and their rights plus reemployment after war, and using tax payers for illegally using state tax funds for military.

Every veteran of service and war has had the same problems and adjustments to make but promises and medical evaluations and double talk will not help them. Jobs and economy are gone, never to come back and PTSD tagged as psychologically damaged has every thing to do with getting a job, they can't hide in colleges forever.
