Six bills approved by House Veterans Affairs Committee
Thursday - 9/16/2010, 5:41pm EDT
The Army Times reports, one of them would create a new veterans job training program.
Another would disallow some types of insurance settlements or court settlements from counting as income that might reduce veterans pensions.
Another proposal doubles the $2,000 monthly pension for living recipients of the Medal of Honor.
The omnibus bill includes a provision aimed at the gun rights of veterans. It would prevent the name of a veteran with a service-connected mental disorder from being included in the FBI database that's used for screening gun buyers unless a veteran is the subject of a judicial review.
While the bills may have made it through the committee, it is unclear if they will become law. Both the House and Senate have a number of big issues to resolve before pre-election breaks.
