S.797 - PACT Act 117th Congress (2021-2022)
(click to read entire Congressional Bill's wording)
Promise to Address Comprehensive Toxics Act, or PACT Act, will ease access to $280 billion in aid for men and women suffering from cancer, respiratory and cardiovascular conditions, and other illnesses related to their exposure to waste incinerated in open-air pits in Iraq and Afghanistan. The act also extends more help to Vietnam War veterans exposed to Agent Orange and to veterans exposed to radiation or other hazards during their service.
This law helps us provide generations of Veterans — and their survivors — with the care and benefits our veterans have earned and deserve.
PACT ACT also provides for expanded benefits for Agent Orange exposures.
