Sen. Moran Talks About the Health Care for Burn Pit Veterans Act


U.S. Senator Jerry Moran – lead Republican on the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee – spoke on the U.S. Senate Floor regarding the introduction of his bipartisan Health Care for Burn Pit Veterans Act with Sen. Jon Tester.


The legislation, which will be considered during an SVAC business meeting, would offer post-9/11 combat veterans, including those suffering from conditions caused by toxic exposures, access to Department of Veterans Affairs health care.


According to Moran, approximately 3.5 million Post-9/11 combat veterans may have experienced some level of exposure to burn pits during their service - many of whom are living with undiagnosed illnesses linked to military toxic exposures - and nearly one-third of those veterans are currently unable to access VA care.
