Congresswoman Shea-Porter supports military families

Postby RD » Sat Aug 02, 2008 2:07 pm

Yesterday, Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter stood up for our nation’s military families and veterans by introducing a critical piece of legislation, the “Protecting Military Family Financial Benefits Act" (H.R. 6774).

“Our men and women in uniform deserve to know that if something happens to them, their children will be taken care of,” said Congresswoman Shea-Porter. “The Protecting Military Family Financial Benefits Act will help ensure that our service members who are single parents have appropriate survivor benefits.”

The Protecting Military Family Financial Benefits Act will allow single-parent military personnel with dependent children to designate guardians or caretakers to receive Death Gratuity benefits and annuities for care of dependent children under the Survivor Benefit Plan (SBP). This legislation will help ensure that if a single-parent service member is killed while deployed, their minor children and families are able to receive the benefits they need to care for these children.

Thank you Congresswoman Shea-Porter!

That was yesterday now that she appears to me losing re-election. Tell me what she has done for the military families in 2007?
