Congress passes the Dr. James Allen Veteran Vision Equity Act

Congress passes the Dr. James Allen Veteran Vision Equity Act (H.R. 797), after seven years of tireless work by Dr. Allen and Congressional Representative Tammy Baldwin, to give veterans greater compensation if they lost vision in one eye during their service and later began to lose vision in the other eye. This was a key to providing the same benefits that veterans received when they lost a limb.
