Brady Applauds Passage of Veterans’ Bills

The House of Representatives has now passed more than 60 bills supporting Veterans

My colleagues in the House of Representatives and I passed fourteen pieces of legislation designed to assist and honor America’s veterans.

This is a big week for the men and women who have sacrificed so much for our country. From day one, President Trump and Congress have been united in our efforts to improve the VA, provide veterans the resources and support they need, and make sure their service is repaid in kind. Each of these bills was passed overwhelmingly, and we have now passed over 60 pieces of legislation impacting our veterans in this session of Congress.

The Eighth District of Texas is home to many of our nation’s finest, and I am proud to support each of these bills in their honor. I applaud President Trump and House Veterans’ Affairs Chairman Phil Roe for working so hard for the men and women who selflessly served our nation.
