Concord, NH – Senator Sharon Carson was recently presented with a certificate of appreciation on behalf of the U.S. Department of Defense recognizing her work on SB 55, allowing private employers to grant preference to veterans when making employment decisions, which was signed into law in 2015.
“I truly appreciate being recognized by the U.S. Department of Defense for my work on SB 55, allowing private employers to give preference to veterans when hiring,” said Senator Sharon Carson (R-Londonderry).
“As a veteran of the U.S. Army Reserve and now a State Senator, I feel a responsibility to do what I can to help Veterans living in our communities. I am proud to work on legislation that addresses veteran’s issues, like ensuring that they have opportunities to work and making sure our veterans and their families receive the benefits they are entitled to.
“Protecting and ensuring that our veterans have a high quality of life continues to be one of my biggest priorities in the Senate and I look forward to continuing to serve them in the upcoming year.”
