Governor Branstad to Get Veterans Bill

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- A bill meant to support veterans already in Iowa and attract others to the state has won the final approval of the Iowa House.
   With a 94-to-2 vote, the House sent the measure to Gov. Terry Branstad, who has made veteran support a priority this session.
   The bill would exempt military pensions from state income tax, and surviving spouses are included in the exemption. It allows companies to give preference to veterans in hiring decisions and offers credit to veterans with occupational licensing. Higher education facilities would also be charged with determining a standard to offer veterans academic credit for military experiences.
   The House also passed a separate measure to expand a homestead tax credit already in place for disabled veterans.
