Toxic Exposure Legislation Expected to be Passed in 2021

Two Congressmen stated that they are positive that the bill to provide benefits to veterans affected by burn pits will be passed this year.

According to an article published by Connecting Vets, “Two bills are currently before Congress that address the health care implications of veterans exposed to toxins. On the Senate side, the Comprehensive and Overdue Support for Troops (COST) of War Act of 2021 would provide generations of veterans suffering from toxic exposures their due benefits and care for the first time in VA history. The legislation recently passed the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee in markup unanimously and was introduced by committee chairman Sen. Jon Tester (D-MT).”
