Committee Passes 7 Bills During First Markup of the 118th Congress

Today, House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs Chairman Mike Bost (R-Ill.), released the following statement after the Committee reported 7 bills to be considered on the House Floor:

“This morning, under my leadership, our Committee successfully reported seven bipartisan bills to be considered by the full House during our first markup of the 118th Congress. Each of these proposals will improve the disability compensation program, staff up the Board of Veterans Appeals, bolster the delivery of healthcare, and more,” said Chairman Bost. “Notably, Rep. Ciscomani’s bill, the VET-TEC Authorization Act. This vitally important bill will expand, improve, and fund the successful VET-TEC employment pilot program which has helped thousands of veterans get the training they need to begin careers in the technology sector. Rep. Ciscomani’s bill is especially important as this program ran out of funding earlier this week. We will bring this bill to the House Floor as soon as possible to ensure that veterans and transitioning servicemembers who wish to use this education benefit can do so.”

The following bills were passed out of the Committee today:

H.R. 1669, the VET-TEC Authorization Act, as amended (Rep. Ciscomani)
HR 1530, Veterans Benefits Improvement Act, as amended (Rep. Luttrell)
H.R. 1529, Veterans' Cost-of-Living Adjustment Act (Rep. Luttrell)
H.R. 562, Improving Veterans Access to Congressional Services Act of 2023, as amended (Rep. Mast)
H.R. 1089, VA Medical Center Facility Transparency Act (Rep. Lesko)
