Our Bill has now cleared the Senate!

Letter from Mike Partain regarding the water issue and the Senate, after some negotiation, Sen. Demitt released the bill to go forward and from his remarks said that he saw no reason for it not to pass. Yea for all of us! Hopefully help is just a few steps away... hang in there.
Our thanks to Jerry Ensminger and Mike Partain for the tireless journey.


Greetings,

Earlier this evening we achieved a major victory in our fight for Camp Lejeune. Senator DeMint released his hold and our Bill has now cleared the Senate. We ask that everyone cease contacting Senator DeMint's office and Face Book from this point forward.

Letter from Mr. Miller

Dear Mrs. Hayes,

Thank you very much for contacting my office regarding watercontamination at Camp Lejeune. I appreciate you taking the time to let me know your opinions on an issueof such importance to you and your family.

H.R. 1742, the Janey Ensminger Act, wouldmake a veterans' service connection presumptive for any illness associated with contaminants in the watersupply at Camp Lejeune.  It would also make family members who resided at Camp Lejeune during the contaminatedtime period eligible for hospital care, medical services, and nursing home care through the Departmentof Veterans Affairs (VA) for any condition or disability associated with exposure to such contaminants. A similar version of the bill, S. 277, passed the Senate Veterans' Affairs Committee in August of 2011.

As Chairman of the House Veterans' Affairs Committee, I amworking with my Senate counterparts to finalize a comprehensive veterans' benefits and health bill thatincludes the Camp Lejeune water contamination legislation.  I hope to bring forward a bill that can passboth chambers of Congress and be signed into law so that veterans receive the care they deserve.

Thank you again for your e-mail.  If you would like to receivefurther information on issues of importance to you, please log on to my website at http://jeffmiller.house.gov/. As always, please contact my office if you have any further concerns.

With warm personalregards, I am


Sincerely,
Jeff Miller
Member of Congress

Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Cover-Up Hinted In Navy Letter

Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Cover-Up Hinted In Navy Letter

The U.S. Navy is asking government investigators to suppress information concerning the toxic water scandal at the Marine Corps' Camp Lejeune, according to a letter obtained Thursday by The Huffington Post.
The letter, signed by Maj. Gen. J.A. Kessler of the Marine Corps and dated Jan. 5, 2012, asks the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Agency for Toxic Substances & Disease Registry to withhold from a forthcoming report details about the whereabouts of water lines, wells, treatment plants and storage tanks on the North Carolina military base -- in the name of national security.

Congress and Camp Lejeune's water

Congress and Camp Lejeune's Water

It's a good thing to have her behind our cause and we thank you for your help Mrs. Dole.
excert--
From Mrs. Dole op-ed:

-As a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, I fought to expose the facts about the Camp Lejeune water contamination and to expedite notification to all potential victims. My legislation requiring the Pentagon to provide such direct notification through a registry was signed into law. The Corps, however, has not utilized the registry to directly inform military families about the EPA's determination.
The provision of medical care for the people made ill by the contaminants in the installation's drinking water must now be addressed through the legislative process. The cost of that care may eventually be high in terms of dollars. We must, nevertheless, meet our nation's ethical and moral responsibilities.
Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C., and Rep. Brad Miller, D-N.C., are to be commended for their sponsorship of legislation that would provide medical care through the Department of Veterans Affairs for individuals who suffer from one or more of these cancers or other health effects and who are known to have served or lived at Camp Lejeune during the years in question. Passage of their legislation and its enactment into law are the necessary next steps.
While passage of Burr's bill looks promising, there is opposition in the House of Representatives to Miller's bill on fiscal grounds. To argue that the United States should not provide medical care to its veterans and their families, whether those injuries were sustained in combat, during training or due to exposure to dangerous chemicals on post, is unconscionable and indefensible.        
       Elizabeth Dole served as a Republican U.S. senator from North Carolina from 2003 to 2009.
