What the House Has Done for Our Veterans

what-the-house-has-done

Veterans Day is just around the corner, but when it comes to our servicemen and women, the House is working year round. Chairman Jeff Miller (FL-01) and the Committee on Veterans’ Affairs have worked tirelessly this past Congress to ensure our veterans receive the most our country can give them in return for what they’ve already given us.

While there is always more to be done—especially further reforms to bring the VA into the 21st century and make it competent and accountable—here’s a list of just a few of the bills that the House has passed recently to help our veterans.

  • GI Tuition Fairness Act: Expands education opportunities for veterans by allowing them to attend the state-run higher-education institution of their choice at the in-state tuition rate.

In the next congress, the House and the Committee on Veterans Affairs will continue to work for our veterans so that we can thank them not just with words, but with actions.
