Rep. Dean Schamore Passes Bill in House to Help Disabled Veterans

Rep. Schamore, Rep. Butler, Denver & Rep. Stumbo (02-03-15) -1Frankfort, KY–Rep. Dean Schamore has successfully passed House Bill 497 in the House of Representatives that will allow the Commonwealth of Kentucky to certify a business as a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business.  Many States have this certification and some States even has set asides for this group.  Currently if a Kentucky Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business tries to do business with one of these States they are at a disadvantage by not having this certification.  This certification will be similar to Woman and Minority Owned Businesses.

The legislation passed the House 98-0 on March 3rd and is awaiting passage in the Senate.
