The bill, which was passed by both the House and the Senate, will soon be on its way to President Bush for signature as part of the emergency supplemental bill he has threatened to veto (it is expected to reach his desk no later than July 4). For the record, Obama voted for the bill, while McCain ducked the vote.
The website for the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA.org) has got a lot of information about the bill and a great action center. You can sign a petition to Bush, find out how your representatives voted, and use other tools to express your support.
Don’t let Republican hypocrisy on the military destroy this important piece of legislation.
Update: Bush signed this bill into law on Monday, June 30. It’s a done deal. Viisit IAVA.org for more info.
