Veterans Bills Signed On Veterans Day of Illinois State Fair


Veterans who apply to become conservation police officers will now be able to get credit for their military experience instead of being required to have a college degree, under legislation signed by Governor Pat Quinn during Sunday’s Veterans Day observance at the Illinois State Fair.

 

That was one of several new bills affecting veterans that the governor approved on Sunday.

 

State Veterans Affairs Director Erica Borggren says Illinois is making progress in helping veterans overcome the challenges they face when they return from military service, but says there is still a lot of work to be done to bring down unemployment among veterans and to help them deal with physical or emotional injuries from combat.
