Bishop Votes in Favor of Bill to Support Veterans
House Continues to Pass Funding Bills for Key Elements of Government
WASHINGTON— The U.S. House of Representatives today passed the Honoring our Promise to America’s Veterans Act with bipartisan support. Congressman Rob Bishop (UT-01), who continues to fight for pay and support of our nation’s military, civilian defense workers, National Guard, reservists, and veterans, voted in support of the legislation.
“As we work toward finding a resolution to the issues regarding Obamacare and subsequent shutdown of the federal government, the House continues to make good-faith efforts to keep essential aspects of government running. This includes our armed forces, civilian defense workers, and key veterans programs. Just as the Senate followed the House’s lead in funding our troops through the Pay Our Military Act, they should also choose to support of our nation’s veterans by passing this legislation. This bill would help alleviate delays with regards to disability claims and will help ensure that veterans are not delayed in receiving their benefits,” said Bishop.
