Leaders of the House and
Senate Committees on Veterans’ Affairs have joined forces to
request that the Administration provide immediate Department of Veterans
Affairs (VA) healthcare to
FRA also supports the Janey Ensminger Act (H.R. 1742), sponsored by Rep. Brad Miller (N.C.), that authorizes VA health care for former military family members, veterans, and family members stationed at Camp Lejeune for three decades beginning in 1957, when the water at the base was acknowledged to have been contaminated with carcinogens. Members are urged to visit the FRA Action Center to ask their representative to support this legislation.
FRA has raised this issue
in its testimony before the House and Senate Veterans Affairs
Committees, and in discussions with legislators and their staff.
