One Step Closer: Senate Committee Includes BRAVE Act in Veterans Benefits Package
September 24, 2020
Late yesterday, the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee announced the Burial Rights for America’s Veteran Efforts (BRAVE) Act (H.R. 497/S. 597) has been included in the Veterans Benefits Enhancement and Expansion Act of 2020 (S. 4511/H.R. 9752). Passage of this benefits package by the Committee clears the bill for a vote by the full Senate. This is a significant move forward for the BRAVE Act. NFDA will continue to work with the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee and leadership to pass the bill before the end of the year. NFDA will also continue to work with the bill’s champions and leadership in the House to ensure it is considered on the floor.
