Mr. RUNYAN. I yield myself such time as I may consume.
Mr. Speaker, one of the top duties of the Committee on Veterans' Affairs is to help enforce and improve the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act, or SCRA, as it is designed to help ease economic and legal burdens on military personnel who are on active duty status. The SCRA is intended to postpone, suspend, or relieve certain civil obligations during a servicemember's period of active duty. It accomplishes this, in part, by regulating certain legal actions against military personnel.
H.R. 1263, as amended, makes several changes to strengthen the current protections. So in order to discuss these improvements, it is my pleasure to yield such time as he may consume to the chairman of the Subcommittee on Economic Opportunity, the gentleman from Indiana, Marlin Stutzman.
