Senate passes bill boosting payments to veterans
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate has sent the White House a bill giving nearly 4 million veterans and survivors a 1.7 percent increase in their monthly benefit payments next year.
The normally routine measure was delayed for weeks because an unidentified Republican senator objected to it.
That objection was lifted, without explanation, when Congress returned this week. The Senate then acted quickly to ensure that checks issued beginning in January reflect the adjustment for the higher cost of living.
