TREA: The Enlisted Association commends Senate for Passage
of H.R. 7105
and urges House to take Swift Action
TREA is pleased with the Senate's passage of H.R. 7105, the Veterans Health Care and Benefits Improvement Act of 2020 on December 9, 2020. The legislation would enhance the quality of life for veterans, their families, and caregivers:
TREA commends the House and Senate Veterans Committees in reaching agreement on this omnibus package containing provisions from more than twelve veteran-related bills. The legislation includes pandemic assistance, education and home loan enhancements, improvements in memorial services and retraining and employment assistance.
We are especially pleased that provisions of the Deborah Sampson Act are included to focus on improving health care for women veterans, and addressing the unique challenges women face. Women veterans deserve these benefits and we look forward to working with VA as they implement these program enhancements.
TREA applauds Chairmen Moran and Takano and Ranking Members Roe and Tester for the bipartisan support to finalize the bill for the benefit veterans and their families.
TREA urges the House to swiftly pass H.R. 7105, send it to the President for signature and assure enactment this year.
