Sen. Mike Johanns issued the following statement after legislation to streamline veterans' services was introduced in the Senate. The bill creates a single website aggregating all of the services and benefits available to veterans, ranging from compensation for injury to employment assistance. Sen. Johanns is the lead Republican cosponsor.
"I am proud to cosponsor this commonsense legislation to streamline access to services for our veterans. A broad range of services are available to our veterans that span several Federal agencies, and this legislation will provide a one-stop-shop to ensure veterans know what's available to them. After serving our country, our veterans should not have to navigate a maze of several confusing and frustrating Federal bureaucracies just to access the benefits they have earned."
