SALT LAKE CITY — State lawmakers may study how to help war veterans reintegrate into civilian life.
The Utah House unanimously passed a bill that would create a 15-member task force to address employment, personal finances, suicide prevention and other issues. It would also create a plan to help transitioning veterans.
Rep. Tim Cosgrove, D-Murray, said he doesn’t want retuning veterans to experience what they did after Vietnam.
HB162 now goes to the Senate.
