Costello Cosponsors Hire More Heroes Act

January 6, 2015
Press Release

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Representative Ryan Costello (R-PA) released the following statement on cosponsoring the Hire More Heroes Act, that was unanimously passed by the U.S. House of Representatives today:

“I was honored to be a cosponsor of the Hire More Heroes Act which encourages our nation’s small businesses to hire more veterans through a change to the existing healthcare law. This bill exempts veterans already enrolled in healthcare plans through the Department of Defense or the VA from being counted toward the employee limit under the healthcare law. Through this small change, small businesses across the Commonwealth and our great nation will be able to hire more of our veterans who are returning home. I look forward to working with my colleagues on more bipartisan, commonsense solutions to grow our economy and get our nation moving again.”
