Rep. Dennis Ross, R-Lakeland, voted Tuesday in favor of the Janey Ensminger Act.
"Today's vote is long overdue," Ross said in a statement to The Ledger. "No matter the cost, no matter the work, and no matter the time, we must always do right by those who wore the uniform. I hope the president will waste no time in signing this legislation and getting the victims of this egregious contamination the compensation and medical attention they are owed. Let this also serve as a lesson and a warning to the Department of Defense and others that such actions will never be tolerated and they should never be afraid to blow the whistle."
