Kaine Praises Senate Progress Toward Repeal Of Military Pension Reductions

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Tim Kaine released the following statement after the Senate voted to advance legislation to repeal the military pension reductions included in the Bipartisan Budget Act:

“Today the Senate took an important step toward the repeal of military pension reductions that unfairly impact our veterans and military families. Since December, I have fought to reverse this provision of the Bipartisan Budget Act by introducing legislation to replace these reductions and advocating for repeal through my role on the Armed Services Committee. Today’s vote gives me hope that we can reach a bipartisan consensus and repeal these reductions that would harm military families in Virginia and across the country."
