Congress has passed new legislation providing an expanded tax credit to employers that hire unemployed veterans. The maximum credit is $5,600 for hiring veterans who have been out of work at least six months; $9,600 for hiring unemployed vets with disabilities.

The new law also repeals a 3% withholding requirement on government payments to contractors.
