Veterans' Preference Parity Act
This bill modifies the eligibility criteria for certain veterans to qualify for a preference in the federal hiring process.

Additionally, a retired member of the Armed Forces is eligible for a veterans' preference, even if the retiree (1) is not a disabled veteran and (2) retired at or above the rank of major or its equivalent.
