Perry touts new law to give vets college credit

Posted: Updated:

SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Gov. Rick Perry is in San Antonio touting a recently passed bill aimed at helping veterans.

He'll be ceremonially signing the new law, which is intended to help vets get college credit for military training.

Sen. Leticia Van de Putte, the San Antonio Democrat who authored the legislation, will join Perry to tout the College Credit for Heroes program. The bill signing is only ceremonial. Perry signed the legislation into law last month.

Perry's speech Thursday will be his first public appearance since undergoing back surgery July 1.
