REP LIEU STATEMENT ON HOUSE PASSAGE OF THE SAVE ACT
WASHINGTON - Today, Congressman Ted W. Lieu (D-Los Angeles County) issued the following statement after the House unanimously passed his bill, the SAVE Act (Supporting At-risk Veterans in an Emergency Act). The bill will ensure the West Los Angeles VA and other VA campuses around the country have the legal authority to provide veterans experiencing hardship access to food.
"We're in the midst of a pandemic that has put a strain on many members of our community, including veterans. I was proud to introduce the SAVE Act in May because the VA needs to have the ability to provide veterans with emergency food aid. No one should go hungry - and that is especially true for our nation's heroes. By passing the SAVE Act, the House is demonstrating its unwavering commitment to the wellbeing of former service members."
