-Fought for historic increases in the Veterans Administration budget;

-Authored bipartisan legislation to expand the groundbreaking Vermont National Guard outreach program;

-Passed legislation to expand nationwide a Vermont program that helps returning veterans start businesses in their communities;

-Co-authored the law that is providing tax credits to employers who hire recently returned veterans; and

-Increased funding for permanent housing and support services for homeless veterans.
