Back in 2016 Deutch brought out the “Preventing Crimes Against Veterans Act”
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – U.S. Rep. Ted Deutch, D-Fla., is hoping the third time is the charm for his “Preventing Crimes Against Veterans Act” which passed the U.S. House without opposition last week.
Back in 2016, then U.S. Rep. Tom Rooney, R-Fla., and Deutch brought out the “Preventing Crimes Against Veterans Act” with then U.S. Rep. David Jolly, R-Fla., as a co-sponsor of the bill.
The House passed the bill in a 411-0 vote later that year but the Senate version, which was sponsored by U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., did not pass before the start of the new Congress.
The same thing happened again last year.
