Should Small Businesses Owned by Veterans Get Additional Opportunities for Federal Transportation Contracts?

Argument in favor

Small businesses are already struggle to compete when it comes to federal contracts, and those owned by veterans ought to be able to compete for federal contracts that are set aside for other disadvantaged groups.

Sure. Our Veterans deserves a boost on contracts. If you place your life and duty for my safety, then you're earned my support.

Can we just agree to help veterans & not behave as though it's optional or a handout? You do NOT get to vote for war while wrapped in the flag and deny veterans an opportunity to make a contribution to the society they risked their lives for! Just do this!

All government contacts should place veterans and their businesses at the top of the selection list if qualified to fulfill the contact. Far too many contacts, specially those held for the "disadvantaged" are awarded based solely on the disadvantage rather than the ability to fulfill the contract requirement.

Argument opposed

There’s no need to make veteran-owned small businesses eligible to receive the 10 percent of federal transportation contracts set aside for disadvantaged groups, as veteran owned businesses already receive ample benefits.

I love the Veterans but the opportunity should be equal to all.

Congress needs to do what they promised and pass bills that will help our Veterans lead productive lives when they return. What happened to the GI bill? More of our Veterans are returning from war than any war before due to Medical advancement. Congress needs to stop wasting time & get work, take care of our Veterans.
