KCLU: Governor Signs Bill By Santa Barbara State Senator To Help Disabled Veterans With Education Jobs

October 03, 2016

The governor signed into law legislation authored by a state senator from Santa Barbara to help disabled veterans who get jobs in California’s public schools.

SB 1180 gives disabled veterans who are new school employees extra sick days during their first year on the job so they don’t lose their positions because they are getting needed medical care. Democratic State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson of Santa Barbara says her bill is a way of repaying those who served their country, and are now serving our students.
