Braley is the highest-ranking Democrat on Veterans’ Affairs Subcommittee on Economic Opportunity 

Washington, DC – This morning, at the request of Rep. Bruce Braley (IA-01), two Iowans testified before the US House Veterans Affairs Subcommittee on Economic Opportunity about lowering the rate of unemployment for the National Guard.  Braley is the highest-ranking Democrat on the subcommittee.

Iowa National Guard Adjutant General Timothy Orr joined Dick Rue, the state chair of the Iowa Employer Support for Guard and Reserve (ESGR), to testify about their experience helping veterans return to work when they come home from a deployment.

Last October, Braley brought the Veterans’ Affairs Subcommittee on Economic Opportunity to Waterloo for a field hearing on veterans’ job creation.
