Military Sexual Trauma Parity Act Passes House

On May 27, the House passed, by voice vote, the National Guard Military Sexual Trauma Parity Act (H.R. 2527), sponsored by Dina Titus (D-NV). The House Veterans’ Affairs Subcommittee on Health held a hearing on the bill March 27 (see The Source, 3/28/14).

The bill would permit veterans who served in the National Guard or reserve components of the armed forces and experienced military sexual assault during inactive duty training to receive the necessary counseling and care from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). This care currently is only available to those who experienced sexual trauma during active duty or active duty for training periods.
