To improve health care and benefits for veterans exposed to toxic substances, and for other purposes.

Sponsor: Rep. Mark Takano — D — CA

Increases disability compensation and health care benefits administered by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) for veterans who have been exposed to toxic substances, materials, or environments during military service. In the future, veterans who developed conditions linked to toxic exposure also would receive those benefits. Survivors of veterans whose disabilities were caused by toxic exposure would receive additional compensation and access to health care under the bill. Veterans and survivors who had previously been denied compensation for certain conditions would receive retroactive payments. H.R. 3967 also increases access to other VA benefits, including education assistance and home loan guarantees for some of those veterans and their dependents. Finally, the bill requires VA to conduct studies, prepare reports, and conduct outreach.
