Veteran’s Day Bill Moves to Full House

Iowa Veteran’s could be getting another paid day off work under a proposal in the State House. House Bill 583 would make Veteran’s Day a paid holiday for men and women who’ve worn the uniform. Supporters say vets have earned the right to a day off in honor of their service. Opponents fear it could create two classes of employees in the work place. It the bill passes, Iowa would be the first state to offer Veteran’s Day as a paid holiday. The measure passed out of committee last week. It now goes before the full House for Debate.
