Governor Quinn to Issue Executive Order for Veteran Hiring

By The Associated Press

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Gov. Pat Quinn says he's signed an executive order designed to help military veterans get jobs.  The order calls for state agencies to streamline the process for veterans applying for job licenses. Quinn says the agencies should consider the veterans' special skills and allow them to skip the extra training that some licenses require.  

He made the executive order public in his State of the State address before lawmakers Wednesday in Springfield. His move follows the Obama Administration's push to help veterans transition from military to civilian life.  Quinn has been a strong supporter of veterans and the military. He says all Illinois residents owe veterans their gratitude.
