Disabled American Veterans: Legislation Critical to Veterans and Families Passes House & Senate

The Disabled American Veterans applauds the House of Representatives for approving the Caregiver and Veterans Omnibus Health Services Act and strongly urges the Senate to quickly give final approval to the measure. This legislative package creates a comprehensive new program to support family caregivers of severely disabled veterans and strengthens VA health care programs for women veterans, homeless veterans, veterans with mental health needs and veterans suffering from traumatic brain injury. The Senate passed its version of the bill (S. 1963) last November by a vote of 98 to 0, and today a negotiated version was approved by the House 419 to 0. Senate approval is needed before the bill goes to the President for his signature.
