Welch demands more rights for veterans exposed to burn pits
WASHINGTON, (WCAX) - Vermont’s junior senator is trying to ensure more rights for veterans exposed to toxic burn pits.
Sen. Peter Welch is calling for the Reducing Exposure to Burn Pits Act to be added to this year’s National Defense Authorization Act which outlines the budget for the Department of Defense.
The Reducing Exposure to Burn Pits Act builds on the Pact Act and focuses on finding alternatives to burn pits to dispose of waste.
