Veteran Opportunities on Local Transportation Act of 2016 or the VOLT Act of 2016

  • the project's estimated cost exceeds $10 million;
  • there is no requirement to hire an individual who does not have relevant craft or trade work skills, unless the individual is subject to an apprenticeship or other training program; and
  • the requirements do not compromise the project's quality, unreasonably delay its completion, or unreasonably increase its cost.
