A new United States House of Representatives bill, Veterans Care Financial Protection Act of 2016, was introduced on January 8, 2016 by Mr. Cartwright (for himself, Mr. Bishop of Georgia, Ms. Jackson Lee, and Mr. Jones). It has been referred to the Committee on Veterans’ Affairs. This is proposed federal legislation. In order for this law to take effect, members of the House of Representatives and the Senate must vote to pass the bill, and the President of the United States must approve it and sign it. This bill will limit the number of Veterans and their dependents who are eligible for benefits.
