WASHINGTON, D.C—Today, House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs Chairman Mark Takano (D-Calif) delivered remarks at the Rules Committee Meeting on his bill, H.R. 3967, as amended, the Honoring Our Promise To Address Comprehensive Toxics Act or the Honoring our PACT Act that will be considered on the House floor this week. This legislation will finally recognize military toxic exposure—from contaminated water at military bases, airborne hazards from burn pits, or radiation from atomic testing—as a cost of war.
