I supported legislation to provide a $14.5 billion increase above fiscal year 2009 for veteran services and programs; including for medical care, mental health, assistance to homeless veterans, medical and prosthetic research, and military construction and family housing. Passage of this bill will increase funding for veterans by 60% since January 2007. For the first time, the bill also included advance funding for fiscal year 2011 to provide reliable and timely funding for veterans medical care. (H.R. 3082 passed the House)
