(This amendment removes the requirement which was proposed in the budget as introduced that veterans hired under the incentive grant program must have been unemployed for at least one year in order for the employer to qualify for the incentive grant of $1,000 for each veteran hired. A companion amendment to Item 470 in Senate Bill 30 makes the corresponding change in Fiscal Years 2017 and 2018.)
