Bloomfield Introduces BRAVE Act to help Veteran Funeral Expenses
"I am pleased to have introduced the BRAVE Act. It will increase certain funeral benefits from $300 to $749 and then index those benefits to inflation. It will also index Death From Service-Connected Disability to inflation as well. It is not a fun thing to think about, but it is necessary and I believe it is a disservice to our veterans to have their benefits eaten up by inflation. This bill is already gathering bi-partisan support and I urge the Speaker to bring this bill to the floor in the next docket so that it can be considered and passed quickly."
