Bost Applauds House Passage of Bipartisan Veterans’ Bills, Including His VA Home Loan Improvement Bill

Today, Rep. Mike Bost (R-Ill.), the Ranking Member of the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, released the following statement after the House passed five bipartisan veterans’ bills:

“The five bills the House passed today will improve the Veterans Benefit Administration to ensure that disabled veterans, student veterans, and their families and survivors get their earned benefits quickly. This includes the Veterans' Compensation Cost-of-Living Adjustment Act which will help families who are grappling with skyrocketing Bidenflation from the grocery store to the gas pump to make ends meet,” said Ranking Member Bost. “I am especially glad to see my bill, the Improving Access to the VA Home Loan Benefit Act, pass out of the House today with overwhelming bipartisan support. This bill will ease the homebuying process for veterans by letting them use the same modern purchasing tools that non-veteran homebuyers already use. This will help them get into their new homes faster. The Senate must pass each of these bipartisan proposals as soon as possible.”

The following bills were passed out of the House today:

H.R. 7735: Improving Access to the VA Home Loan Benefit Act of 2022, as amended (Rep. Bost)
H.R. 7939: The Student Veteran Emergency Relief Act of 2022, as amended (Rep. Mike Levin)
