Support Key Defense Bill Amendments

Carriage Towne News

---- — During the final session of the 112th Congress, I want to ask for your special attention to a key piece of legislation impacting our veterans this holiday season.

As the Senate addresses the FY2013 Defense Authorization Bill, I urge you to support several key amendments, including: -Sen. Jack Reed’s (D-RI) TRICARE pharmacy amendment -Sen. Frank Lautenberg’s (D-NJ) amendment acknowledging career service members’ steep pre-paid premiums of service and sacrifice -Sen. Harry Reid’s (D-NV) amendment to ease concurrent receipt penalties for disabled retirees -Sen. Bill Nelson’s (D-FL) amendment to end SBP-DIC offset for military widows Please vote for these amendments and do all you can to ensure their inclusion in the final defense bill.
