Four New Congressional Co-Sponsors for H.R.178!

I am pleased to report that four additional members of the House of Representatives have agreed to cosponsor H.R.178—critical legislation that fixes a broken and unfair government policy in force today that requires that the surviving spouses of our military heroes to forfeit their earned Survival Benefit Pension annuity by the dollar amount of Dependency and Indemnity Compensation, a death benefit provided by the Veterans Affairs Department.

The four new cosponsors are:

Rep Perlmutter, Ed [CO-7] - 3/19/2012
Rep Green, Al [TX-9] - 3/26/2012
Rep Austria, Steve [OH-7] - 3/26/2012
Rep Kaptur, Marcy [OH-9] - 3/26/2012

If these are your representatives in congress, please be sure to thank them for their support—and ask them to help champion this bill to passage.

You can send them a message here—it's quick, easy and a great way to let your voice be heard.
