House passes cost of living adjustment for veterans' benefits
from The Hill
From Aug. 5:
The House approved legislation that would increase rates of benefit compensation for veterans with disabilities caused by their military service. "Many disabled veterans and their families depend on Veterans Affairs benefits to pay for their housing, their food and other necessities. Therefore, it is absolutely essential that VA benefits keep pace with the rate of inflation so that our nation's heroes are able to make ends meet," said House Veterans Affairs Committee Chairman Jeff Miller.
