Doug introduced bipartisan legislation to eliminate the “Widow’s Tax” on veterans’ spouses. Currently, a tax provision prevents military spouses from receiving full survivor benefits if their deceased service member was enrolled in any additional survivor benefits programs. Doug’s bill has received a record number of bipartisan cosponsors in the Senate.

President Trump is off to a good start – Veteran unemployment is at its lowest point in history: 2.3%. But we can and must do more to help our Veterans re-enter the workforce and society. We must provide them with high-quality care and job training, and ensure that those who need it get the psychological care and attention they need to deal with the issues they face being back home.

The first role of our government is to protect its citizens and that is why I will support a strong and robust military. I know we must provide our Armed Forces with the tools and resources they need to protect Americans at home and abroad. Alabamians are proud and we stand with our military and our Veterans who have given so much for our nation.
