Gillibrand’s burn pits legislation passes the US Senate
The U.S. Senate passed burn pits legislation that would guarantee medical care for U.S service members who served in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The Sergeant First Class Heath Robinson Honoring Our PACT Act was sponsored by Senator Kirsten Gillibrand.
Service members, veterans and their families pushed for the legislation for several years. It allows for a presumptive service connection for veterans who were exposed to burn pits and toxins.
