The Honoring America’s Veterans and Caring for Camp Lejeune Families Act of 2012

WASHINGTON, D.C.— Rep. Jeff Miller, Chairman of the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, issued the following statement on the Senate passage of H.R. 1627, the Honoring America’s Veterans and Caring for Camp Lejeune Families Act of 2012:

“This legislation brings together nearly two years’ worth of work on behalf of America’s veterans. From streamlining and adding increased accountability to the disability claims process, to protecting our veterans from sexual assault, and providing for the future of Arlington National Cemetery, the Honoring America’s Veterans and Caring for Camp Lejeune Families Act of 2012 is a tribute ensuring our veterans, their families, and survivors are guaranteed the benefits earned through their service to our Nation.

“With Senate passage today of H.R. 1627, our veterans are one step closer to receiving healthcare and improved services from VA. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Chairman Murray and Ranking Member Burr for their leadership in the Senate, as well as Ranking Member Filner’s support here in the House, to make this legislation a reality. Finally, I want to thank Senator DeMint for working with us to ensure that resources are focused on veterans and family members in need of VA healthcare.

“I look forward to the House passing this legislation as soon as possible.”
