More Dollars for Disabled Vets?:

Sen. Daniel Akaka (D-Hawaii) and Sen. Larry Craig (R-Idaho) believe legislation they have sponsored that would raise the cost of living adjustment for disabled veterans will pass the Senate this week. According to a statement from the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee, Congress has passed such measures every year since 1976. If approved, it would take effect Dec. 1 and provide an average increase of around 2.9 percent.
