Wounded Warrior Federal Leave Act of 2014 Approved in Committee

Recently, a bill I co-authored, H.R. 5229, the Wounded Warrior Federal Leave Act of 2014, was approved by the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform and will likely appear on the House Floor in November for final votes.

The bill will grant paid leave for first year federal employees who have a 30% or more service related disability. Currently, new federal employees do not have medical leave during their first year of civilian government employees. Our injured veterans need the time to get the treatment they need, and this bill solves that problem. I look forward to its prompt passage by both the House and Senate and it being signed into law by the President.
