New Illinois law helps veterans get jobs in the state

Posted: Updated:

Governor Pat Quinn signs a bill into law to make it easier for Illinois veterans to get jobs as police officers, emergency medical technicians, and commercial vehicle drivers.

Service members and veterans who have at least two years of experience operating a military vehicle can bypass the skills tests when applying for a CDL, Commercial Drivers License. Another part of the bill eliminates the college degree requirement for veterans who have earned certain medals and want to become state police officers.
