Senate Committee on Indian Affairs approves two bills at meeting

 


The Senate Committee on Indian Affairs advanced a veterans health bill and an economic development bill at a business meeting on Wednesday.

Both measures are considered non-controversial. But Sen. Jon Tester (D-Montana), raised concerns about S.2417, the Tribal Veterans Health Care Enhancement Act.

The bill authorizes the Indian Health Service to cover the cost of co-pays for Indian veterans who receive care at the Department of Veterans Affairs. Despite that worthy goal, Tester said the measure fails to address an underlying issue.
