Senate Must Pass the Honoring Our PACT Act

 

Background

The Honoring our PACT Act passed the House in March with a broad bipartisan vote. 

Now it is time for the Senate to do its job.

The Honoring our PACT Act is THE comprehensive solution to provide access to VA health care and benefits to toxic-exposed veterans. Supported by more than 40 veteran organizations, this historic legislation would help millions of veterans by establishing a permanent presumptive framework to address any toxic exposure, foreign or domestic, past, present, and future. It would provide VA health care access for all veterans exposed to hazards, create a concession of exposure for airborne toxins, and establish a list of presumptive conditions associated with burn pits and other exposures. This legislation would help Post-9/11 veterans, Persian Gulf War veterans, K2 veterans, Atomic veterans, and Vietnam veterans, including those who served in Thailand, Cambodia, and Laos. We urge the Senate to pass the Honoring our PACT Act as soon as it is brought to the floor.


Take Action

Contact your senators and tell them to vote YES when the Honoring our PACT Act is brought to the Senate floor. Toxic-exposed veterans cannot afford to wait any longer for health care and benefits. We must act now!
