News Release

Concord, NH – Today, the senate passed two critical bills in support of the State of New Hampshire’s Veterans. The first bill, SB 55, would provide private business employers with the ability to express a preference for hiring veterans and SB 75, which protects veterans from fraudulent trade practices that target our state’s veterans.

Senator Sharon Carson released a statement following the passage of these bills.

“I commend my Senate colleagues for their full support of our veterans by passing two important bills that help us fulfill our responsibilities to provide services for our veterans, “said Senator Sharon Carson (R-Londonderry).

 “Veterans deserve the support of businesses in securing employment and companies should seek preference in hiring men and women who served our nation. I was prime sponsor for SB 55 which allows just that,” continued Carson

“In addition, I co-sponsored SB 75 which is critical in making sure our states Veterans, many of whom have been targeted by business scams, are protected from threats like these and are able to obtain the services they are entitled to.”
