Legislative

Following recent allegations in Tomah, Wisc., The American Legion is urging Congress to pass legislation that would benefit veterans receiving VA care and prescriptions.

Legion chief says budget shortfall can’t stand in the way of veteran care.

During recent testimony, a Legion representative noted how consolidation of Department of Veterans Affairs fiduciary programs are hampering advocacy efforts and limiting interaction betreen accredited representatives and the VA.

Legionnaires have a voice in the nation's capital. On behalf of the organization's membership, The American Legion's Legislative staff monitors the progress of legislation passing through the House and Senate, and attends various congressional committee hearings, providing testimony at many.
