Urgent Concern: Oppose HB 736 to Protect Veterans’ Rights
Dear [Legislator’s Name],
I am writing as a concerned citizen and advocate for our veterans’ rights, urging you to oppose HB 736, the Veterans’ Services Protection Act. We all agree that protecting veterans is a vital goal, but unfortunately, HB 736 does not effectively achieve this, and in some ways does the opposite.
The bill restricts veterans’ ability to hire expert help to help them navigate the broken VA. This limitation not only undermines veterans’ rights but also traps them in a backlogged appeals system, primarily enriching a limited group of attorneys.
This bill’s approach contrasts with the necessary reforms to protect veterans from exploitation while preserving their right to seek expert claims support. It’s crucial that you oppose HB 736 and prevent further strain on an already overwhelmed system and ensure that our veterans have the freedom to choose the best path for their claims.
