A group of House Republicans are advocating for the advancement of eight bills designed to improve the lives of Oregon vets with limited financial impact on the State budget. Representative Mike McClain says Oregon soldiers are doing multiple tours of duty. One bill helps soldiers' families cover the costs of keeping in touch. Another bill would authorize a third veterans' home in Roseburg. The "Care Package for Oregon Veterans" would expand incentives for doctors to accept patients who have military health coverage called Tri-Care.
