President Obama signs Rep. Gabbard’s bill into law

Freshman Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard’s first piece of legislation is now law.

President Barack Obama signed the Helping Heroes Fly Act on Friday.

Gabbard, a twice-deployed veteran and member of the Hawaii Army National Guard, introduced the bill in March to improve airport security screening for wounded and disabled service members and veterans.

The bill passed unanimously in the Senate last week.
