Bill would protect veterans' pensions

March 24, 1998|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

In the wake of an article in The Sun, Rep. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. has introduced legislation that he says would more fairly compute income for veterans who receive disability payments from the Department of Veterans Affairs.

The 2nd District Republican said he introduced the legislation after he learned of a Middle River veteran whose disability pension was reduced by nearly $1,000 because a VA settlement and payment placed him in a higher income bracket.
