Veteran's health

On May 23, 2007, the House considered the Veterans Outreach Improvement Act of 2007, sponsored by Rep. McIntyre, which sought to expand the outreach activities of the Department of Veterans Affairs. The bill would establish a coordination program between government agencies with the purpose of improving outreach from the Department of Veteran’s Affairs to veterans, their spouses and children and parents. The Office of Public Affairs, the Veterans Health Administration, the Veterans Benefits Administration, and the National Cemetery Administration would assure that recipients are fully informed about and assisted in applying for any veterans’ and veterans’-related benefits and programs for which they may be eligible. The bill passed 421-0.
