Senate passes the PACT Act to provide more help to veterans exposed to burn pits and other toxins

Recommended Posts

WASHINGTON — The Senate on Thursday passed historic legislation that would expand eligibility for health care and benefits to veterans exposed to burn pits and other toxins.

The bill, which is called the Sergeant First Class Heath Robinson Honoring Our Promise to Address Comprehensive Toxics Act of 2022, or PACT Act, passed by a vote of 84 to 14. Sens. Steve Daines, R-Mont., and Roger Wicker, R-Miss., did not vote. The legislation will now return to the House for that chamber’s approval.
