Miller Introduces Bill to Compensate Vets for Loss of Use of Creative Organs
Yesterday, Chairman Miller introduced H.R. 4892, which would help veterans who have suffered a traumatic injury to their reproductive organs and who, as a result, cannot have children. The bill would provide affected veterans compensation for their injuries totaling $20,000, which could be used at the veteran’s discretion, including for adoption fees or other personal expenses.
After introducing the bill, Chairman Miller released the following statement:
“This bill is about providing those who sacrificed more than most can imagine fair compensation and the opportunity to raise a family. If a veteran does decide to use this benefit to start a family of their own, the real winners would be the children. Who better to raise America’s next generation than the bravest of our current generation? But no matter how each affected veteran might utilize this benefit, one thing is clear: they earned it.” – Rep. Jeff Miller, Chairman, House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs
