Lawmaker Sets Ambitious Plan for Omnibus Toxic Exposure Bill to Help Millions of Sick Veterans

Sen. Jon Tester, D-Mont., set his sights Wednesday to deliver a sweeping legislative package to tackle a wide swath of health care issues impacting a half century worth of veterans sickened by toxic exposure -- an ambitious target that could significantly bolster services at the Department of Veterans Affairs.

"There are a number of bills out there. We need to put those bills together and we will, in a comprehensive package that I hope to mark up in this committee before Memorial Day," Tester, the chair of the Senate VA committee, said at a hearing Wednesday. "If we're able to do that, I believe that gets us time to get something done this year."

The Senate and House VA committees are holding coordinated hearings on two dozen bills related to toxic exposure. The Senate had its hearing Wednesday; the House is set for May 5.
