A provision in the Senate’s version of the fiscal 2017 National Defense Authorization Act would limit veterans’ preference to a veteran’s first federal job only, Government Executive reports.
Although the measure is included in the defense bill, it would apply at agencies across the federal government. The provision does not appear in the House’s version of the NDAA passed last month.
The proposed provision also would impact some relatives of vets such as parents and spouses, who may have access to the hiring advantage under certain circumstances, the report notes.
