Reaching an Agreement on Historic Legislation for Veterans. For far too long, veterans exposed to toxic substances while serving our nation have been denied access to health care and benefits through the VA. This includes many of the 3.5 million post-9/11 veterans who have potentially encountered toxic exposures from burn pits – areas near military bases used to burn chemicals, rubber, medical waste, plastics, and other waste that would emit toxic smoke. As leaders of the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee, Senator Jon Tester and I are committed to passing legislation to provide these veterans – and future generations of veterans – with the health care and benefits they deserve.

Welcoming the 250,000th Honor Flight Veteran to Washington, D.C. This month, the Honor Flight Network will bring the 250,000th veteran to see the memorials built in their honor. I’ve had the opportunity to welcome hundreds of veterans on Honor Flights to Washington, D.C. and have witnessed the impact these trips have on them. I’m grateful that we could stand at the World War II Memorial – that was built largely due to the tireless work of World War II veteran and Kansas Senator Bob Dole – to recognize Honor Flights and the 250,000 veterans who have embarked on their journey to our nation’s capital.

Roger Marshall is wrong to not support Ketanji Brown Jackson. We hope Jerry Moran does better.

Ketanji Brown Jackson is perfectly qualified to serve on the United States Supreme Court. Full stop. Unsurprisingly, Kansas Sen. Roger Marshall, believes otherwise. The Topeka Capital-Journal reports Marshall released a statement saying he had listened to two days of confirmation hearings and conducted "a thorough and thoughtful review of her qualifications and judicial record" before coming to the conclusion that he "cannot support her confirmation."
