Moolenaar Votes for Bill to Protect Veterans
Tonight, the House of the Representatives passed the Preventing Crimes Against Veterans Act. The legislation makes it a federal crime, punishable by fine and up to five years in prison, to defraud veterans of their VA benefits.
Congressman John Moolenaar voted for the legislation and it passed with an overwhelmingly bipartisan vote of 416-5.
“Our veterans served and defended this country, and now this is a small way we can help protect them. Anyone who defrauds our veterans of their benefits should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,” said Moolenaar.
