Senator Joe Donnelly (D-IN) says new legislation he’s sponsoring will help National Guard members who haven’t served oversees get a boost when applying for federal jobs. 

Those who have not served overseas currently receive no preference when applying for federal jobs.  Donnelly's bill, which has a Republican cosponsor, would create a new tiered system for federal hiring. 

Donnelly says he wants to help the thousands of veterans who aren’t recognized by the current preference system.
