Long-awaited legislation to provide health care and benefits to veterans affected by toxic substances related to their military service was expected to pass last week. But in a surprise move, the bill was blocked.

A new vote on the legislation could come as soon as this week. Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) speaks with Here & Now's Scott Tong about the failure of the PACT ACT.

This segment aired on August 1, 2022.
