Tester Statement on Procopio v Wilkie

Ranking Member of the Senate Veterans' Affairs Committee Jon Tester today released the following statement after the U.S. Court of Appeals announced its ruling on Procopio v Wilkie: 

“This court ruling will bring justice to Blue Water Navy veterans who have fought for the benefits to which they are entitled for far too long. I stand ready to hold the VA accountable for bringing justice to these veterans.  And I will do my part to ensure VA has everything it needs to comply with this ruling in the spirit of the original Agent Orange Act of 1991.”
