On Friday, I presided over debate on H.R. 840, the Veterans’ Access to Child Care Act, which provides no-cost child care to veterans when receiving health services covered by the VA. The House adopted 20 amendments to H.R. 840, including the one I offered to ensure veterans in the Marianas and elsewhere, who receive tele-mental health care, also have access to the child care benefit.
