House Approves Frelinghuysen Measure to Protect "Families of the Fallen"

Press Release

Location: Washington, DC

The U.S. House of Representatives has unanimously passed legislation, introduced by Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen (NJ-11), designed to ensure that the families of military servicemembers who have died for the country receive government benefits they deserve.

"Our government has no greater responsibility than to take care of the families of our brave men and women who have fought and died for our country," said Frelinghuysen, the Vice-Chair of the House Defense Appropriations Subcommittee. "This bipartisan legislation provides continuing appropriations to ensure that if troops are killed serving our country, our government will honor its obligations to them and their families without delay."

The bipartisan bill was quickly developed after the Pentagon said it could no longer make "death gratuity" payments to families after the beginning of the new fiscal year on October 1 because of the government shutdown.
