Senators Will Call on Senate to Pass Veterans Omnibus LegislationSubmitted by Jerry Ensminger for Salem-News.com
Murray will ask for ...immediate passage of the Honoring America’s Veterans and Caring for Camp Lejeune Families Act of 2012.
(WASHINGTON DC) - Tomorrow, Wednesday, July 18th, U.S. Senator Patty Murray and Senator Richard Burr will be making floor speeches to introduce "The Honoring America's Veterans and Caring for Camp Lejeune Families Act" and we can all watch this happen on C-Span.
This is bipartisan, bicameral, and comprehensive legislation that combines provisions of the Veterans Programs Improvement Act of 2011 (S. 914, Report No. 112-088) and Honoring American Veterans Act of 2011 (H.R. 1627, Report No. 112-084 Part 1), as well as provisions from other Senate and House legislation.
This comprehensive package would extend health care to veterans and their families who lived at Camp Lejeune, expand critical health programs, improve housing programs for severely disabled veterans, enhance programs for homeless veterans, and make needed improvements to the disability claims system.
