NC congressman to introduces bill on Lejeune water Associated Press Daily Reflector October 6, 2009WILMINGTON, N.C. - A North Carolina congressman is introducing a bill to give Department of Veterans Affairs health care to those exposed to contaminated water at the Marines' Camp Lejeune.
Rep. Brad Miller, a Democrat from North Carolina, plans to submit the legislation later this month, a companion bill to the "Caring for Camp Lejeune Veterans Act of 2009" introduced by Republican Sen. Richard Burr in July.
Miller chairs the House Committee on Science and Technology's Subcommittee on Investigations and Oversight and has held hearings on the issue.
The proposed bills would grant care at a VA facility to any veteran or family member who was based at Camp Lejeune during the time the water was contaminated and suffers from adverse health effects.
