Entry Description

Indianapolis – Governor Mike Pence today signed various bills regarding Hoosier veterans. 

“The men and women of our armed forces stepped forward for us, and now it’s our turn,” said Governor Pence. “The State of Indiana fully supports those who have answered the call of duty, and the legislation I sign today places a high priority on ensuring their well-being upon returning home. We owe our heroes nothing less.” 

The Governor signed: 

  • SEA 354, establishing the Hoosier Women Veterans Program to provide services and information to Hoosier female veterans.
  • SEA 331, creating the Second Service for Veterans Program to encourage veterans to become teachers.
  • HEA 1242, making it illegal for an employer to discriminate against a potential employee who is either a veteran or a member of the Indiana National Guard or Reserve.
  • SEA 180, establishing the Veterans Disability Clinic Fund to provide grants to qualified law schools that maintain a veterans disability clinic. 

The Governor also signed a number of other bills today. Learn more by visiting Bill Watch: http://www.in.gov/gov/2014billwatch.htm. 

### 

Enrolled acts signed by the Speaker of the House and the President Pro Tempore are sent to the Office of the Lt. Governor for signature, are then returned to the Office to the Secretary of the Senate, and then go to the Office of the Governor. From there, the Governor reviews all legislation and has seven days to sign or veto the bill. If he does not sign it, it automatically becomes law on the eighth day after receipt.
