Aid secured for victims of Camp Lejeune's toxic water

August 2012

EWG worked closely with House and Senate champions and the White House to enact legislation to extend health benefits to military veterans and family members exposed to toxic chemicals at Camp Lejeune. EWG joined North Carolina legislators and other congressional leaders in pressing for the bill's passage and helped secure a White House signing ceremony. When President Obama signed the Honoring America's Veterans and Caring for Camp Lejeune Families Act, Heather White joined leading advocates Jerry Ensminger and Mike Partain at the White House.
