Sen. Johnson Releases Statement on PACT Act

WASHINGTON – On Wednesday, U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson released the following statement after voting against cloture on the motion to concur for the PACT Act.

“I support providing coverage to service members affected by burn pit exposure. Unfortunately, the bill as written includes an unnecessary provision that opens the door for more reckless government spending, unrelated to the VA. I voted no on cloture tonight to insist on having the ability to amend the bill to correct this.”
