Biden signs PACT Act

President Biden signed the Honoring our PACT Act into law, securing access to life-saving care for the 3.5 million veterans exposed to deadly toxins in the line of duty. The Department of Veterans Affairs has begun honoring claims reflecting the 23 new conditions and cancers included in the legislation to qualify for presumptive eligibility for VA benefits. Veterans can access the list of qualifying conditions here: https://www.va.gov/pact. As an original cosponsor of the PACT Act, I have fought alongside the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs and veteran service organizations for the passage of this legislation, so toxic exposed veterans in the Marianas and elsewhere can receive the care they deserve.
