House Passes 5 Bipartisan Veterans’ Bills

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 veterans’ bills:

“I was proud to support all five of the veterans’ bills that passed the House today. Especially Rep. Higgins bill, the Long-Term Care Veterans Choice Act, which will expand options for where elderly veterans are able to comfortably live out their days. This legislation is vitally important as more and more veterans are choosing to age in place,” said Ranking Member Bost. “Veterans have earned VA care and services that reach and work for them, wherever they are. These bills will help us achieve that goal. I hope the Senate will pass and send these proposals to the President’s desk before the end of the year.”

The following bills were passed out of the House today:

H.R. 7158, the Long-Term Care Veterans Choice Act, as amended (Rep. Higgins)
H.R. 4601, the Commitment to Veteran Support and Outreach Act, as amended (Rep. Levin/Rep. Rosendale)
H.R. 4772, the Mark O’Brien VA Clothing Allowance Improvement Act, as amended (Rep. Levin/Rep. Moore)
