#5Improve programing for veterans in / transitioning from justice system. 

 

#4Improve occupational licensure for veterans and military spouses. 

 

#3 – Honor and recognize veteran's service by reducing certain state fees, offering veterans preferences, and providing medical time off for veterans employed by the State of Nevada. 

 

#2 – Require service providers to implement the, “Ask the Question” Program to both improve veterans’ health care outcomes, and to inform them of earned benefits. 

 

#1 – Improve medical and mental health care programs, especially those associated with dental health and suicide prevention.
