Bucco bill helping veterans get hired continues advancing

MORRIS COUNTY — The Assembly Appropriations Committee cleared legislation sponsored by Assemblyman Anthony M. Bucco which helps returning soldiers find employment. The bill (A2162) allows National guardsmen and reservists who previously passed civil service tests for police or firefighter positions to retain placement on eligibility lists while on active duty.

“Through no fault of their own, men and women who leave their homes, families and friends to serve their country can miss out on opportunities as civil service lists expire while they are deployed,” said Bucco. “They shouldn’t lose their place in line for jobs they qualified for. With this bill, they can return home and keep their position on an eligibility list without delays and having to re-test.”

Bucco’s bill passed the Assembly Military and Veteran’s Affairs Committee in February.

It applies to members of the national guard and reserve who served at least 30 days of continuous active duty and who qualified for eligibility but were unable to accept a position as a police officer or firefighter because they were deployed.
