A blog about Elizabeth Warren and her Persistence

Another day, another solid piece of legislation proposed by Elizabeth Warren.  Read all about it here.

She has introduced legislation this week that would require the military to include problem gambling screens in annual health and behavioral surveys.

The bill, which Warren formally offered on Monday, would require the Department of Defense to screen service members for gambling disorders in the Annual Periodic Health Assessment and the Health Related Behavior Surveys –a recommendation included in a January Government Accountability Office report.

The Massachusetts Democrat, who had called on the agency to study military problem gambling in 2015, contended that her proposed legislation will “help advance the military’s efforts to support service members dealing with gambling addiction.”

“Our men and women in uniform deserve nothing less,” she stressed.

Fantastic initiative and another piece of humanizing legislation to help our servicemembers from Elizabeth Warren.

This is another piece of helpful legislation that, if passed, can help our men and women in uniform.
