Join 228 Bipartisan Cosponsors – Honor Late-Rep. Mark Takai. Help Radiation-Exposed Veterans.

I invite you to co-sponsor the bipartisan “Mark Takai Atomic Veterans Healthcare Parity Act”.  This legislation was originally introduced by our late friend, Rep. Mark Takai, and reintroduced in his honor after his passing.  The “Mark Takai Atomic Veterans
Healthcare Parity Act” would permit veterans who participated in the nuclear cleanup of Enewetak Atoll, the site of 43 nuclear tests in the Marshall Islands, to be treated as “radiation-exposed veterans”.  This change in law will allow servicemembers who performed
the largest nuclear cleanup ever undertaken to receive the medical care they now need for service-connected cancers and diseases.  Current law only covers servicemembers who participated in active nuclear tests, not those who participated in the clean-up.
