BRADLEY SUPPORTS VETERANS APPROPRIATIONS BILL
First District Congressman Jeb Bradley today voted for legislation that will fund health care programs and benefits for our nation's veterans and housing for our soldiers and their families. The House of Representatives passed H.R. 5385, the fiscal year 2007 Military Quality of Life Appropriations Act, by a unanimous vote this afternoon.
"This bill maintains our commitment to those who have honorably served our country," stated Bradley, a member of the House Armed Services and Veterans' Affairs Committees. "Ensuring that our veterans' medical needs are met is more important than ever now, given the number of men and women returning from combat overseas. I am also pleased that this bill increases funding for veterans' health care without implementing enrollment fees or increasing prescription drug co-payments, which I fought to keep out of the budget."
