Enzi, Klobuchar reintroduce their “Veterans to Paramedics Transition Act” in Congress

(Washington, D.C.) – U.S. Senators Mike Enzi (R-Wyo.) and Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) renewed their efforts this week to help increase job opportunities for returning veterans. The senators reintroduced their bipartisan legislation – the Veterans to Paramedics Transition Act – that would streamline civilian paramedic training for returning veterans who already have emergency medical experience as a result of their military service, making it easier for them to secure jobs as paramedics. The bill would also help reduce the shortage of much-needed emergency medical personnel in rural communities across the country.
