3% Withholding Repeal And Job Creation Act November 16, 2011
Marlin Stutzman, R-IN
"Current Law Section 2 of the Jobs for Veterans Act, P.L. 107-288, required DOL to give veterans, and certain spouses of veterans, priority of service in all DOL training programs for which the veteran or spouse would otherwise qualify. DOL’s interpretation of this requirement is to use the proportion of representation of veterans in training programs versus the general veteran population as a basis for determining that the priority of service requirement of section 4215 of title 38, U.S.C, is met. Senate Bill The Senate Bill does not contain a similar provision. House Bill Section 239 of H.R. 2433, as amended, would amend section 4215 of title 38, U.S.C., to clarify the law to ensure that veterans are indeed receiving the priority of service envisioned in P.L. 107-288. The section also requires a new section to the VETS annual report, required under section 4107(c) U.S.C., which will track this priority of service at the local level. The section also clarifies that DOL may not use the proportion of representation of veterans in training programs vs. the general veteran population as a basis for determining that the priority of service requirement of section 4215 of title 38, U.S.C, is met. Compromise Agreement Section 309 of the Compromise Agreement follows the House Bill. The Committees note that there are at least 24 job training programs operated under the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) for which veterans should have priority. Based on DOL statistics, it appears that DOL interprets the priority of service requirement to be met if veterans and other covered persons are shown to be participating in a DOL training program at a percentage roughly equal to the percentage of veterans in the general population (around nine to ten percent). The Committees believe such a proportion-based approach fails to meet both the letter and spirit of the law. While DOL indicates that veterans comprise about eight percent of WIA participants, most WIA programs fall well short of the rate. Therefore, the Committees believe that priority of service must be quantified using the number of qualified veteran applicants and the number trained relative to the total program participants."
Veterans’ Benefits Act Of 2010 September 29, 2010
Bob Filner, D-CA
"Public Law 109-461 (120 Stat. 3403), the Veterans Benefits, Health Care, and Information Technology Act of 2006, requires VA to maintain the VetBiz Vendor Information Page (VIP) database containing Veteran Owned Small Businesses (VOSB) and Service-Disabled Veteran Owned Small Businesses (SDVOSB). This law also requires VA to verify that registered firms meet the eligibility requirements to be classified as VOSBs or SDVOSBs to be included in the database. Senate Bill The Senate Bills contain no comparable provision. House Bill Section 101 of H.R. 3949, as amended, would require VA to verify small business concerns prior to being listed in the VIP database. Compromise Agreement Section 104 of the Compromise Agreement follows the House Bill."
Veterans’ Mental Health And Other Care Improvements Act Of 2008 September 24, 2008
Bob FILNER, Democrat-CA
"The Compromise Agreement includes the listing of substance use disorder services included in both the Senate and House bills, and follows the Senate bill with respect to the locations of where services would be provided. The Compromise Agreement follows the House bill with respect to ensuring the equitable distribution of resources for substance abuse services but does not include the annual reporting requirement."
