On December 4, 2015 President Obama signed Public Law 114-94, better known as the Fixing America's Surface Transportation (FAST) act, or the long-term highway funding bill. Buried deep in the law is a provision that may be of interest to many veterans seeking employment as truck drivers. The new law can save veterans thousands of dollars of CDL training that may not be covered by the GI Bill if they have military experience driving similar commercial-type vehicles and want to get a civilian CDL.
