Senator Lisa Murkowski today cast a vote to begin debate on S.1963, the Military Pension COLA Bill, after over a month of seeking legislative solutions to this issue, saying:

"I have left no doubt that I am committed to restoring the full pension benefits to early military retirees, set to see a 1% cost-of-living cut starting in January of 2016. I have backed a number of sensible pieces of legislation that will deliver on our promise to veterans without digging the nation deeper into debt, and I hope the Senate Majority allows a responsible debate on this issue this week."

The U.S. Senate voted 94-0 to open up debate on this bill.
