WASHINGTON — Members of the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee announced Wednesday that they have reached an agreement that would expand eligibility for health care and benefits to all veterans exposed to burn pits and other toxins.

Sens. Jon Tester, D-Mont., chairman of the committee, and Jerry Moran of Kansas, the ranking Republican on the committee, introduced the Sergeant First Class Heath Robinson Honoring Our Promise to Address Comprehensive Toxics, or PACT, Act of 2022. The senators called the legislation historic and said the bill will provide long overdue health care services and benefits for all veterans exposed to toxins.
