|Rep. Spiegelman recently attended the Delaware Veterans' Stand Down event in Dover where many community service providers were on hand to offer their assistance to veterans. Also at the event, the Governor signed into law House Bill 88, which extends the veterans' hiring preference points in the State merit system. Currently, the preference is limited to veterans of the armed forces who served during wartime. The bill allows all veterans who served on active duty and were honorably terminated to receive the preference points. Also, the bill allows members of the Delaware National Guard or a reserve unit to receive the points if that member has put in at least 20 years.
