WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs held a full Committee markup, advancing 13 bills that will increase accessibility to mental health care and resources, promote equitable access to reproductive healthcare services for all veterans, and ensure that veterans transitioning from service to civilian life are fully and holistically supported and able to access comprehensive benefits. 

“These bills reaffirm our country’s commitment to ensuring all veterans can receive the benefits, care, and support they have earned and deserve,” said Chairman Takano. “Supporting veterans extends beyond their transition to civilian life – it includes ensuring veterans and their families have the resources and access to benefits and care necessary to live meaningful lives after leaving military service.”
