Hello Rolling Thunder!

For 30 years, your voices and motorcycles have been roaring in Washington, and lawmakers and the Trump administration are listening. Veterans’ issues are front and center in the halls of Congress, and Secretary Shulkin is reforming the Veterans Administration to restore the trust you all demand. Keep up your fight for the rights and benefits you have earned in service to this nation.

I am proud to join with your organization in introducing two measures important to Rolling Thunder: legislation to end the 40-mile rule for private care through the VA and legislation to display the POW/MIA flag on federal properties.

These ideas came from meetings with your membership. This is how the process is supposed to work. The ideas and insight from your experiences make their way into legislation to help veterans. Lobby your representatives and senators to co-sponsor these bills and to support them into becoming law.

Republican Rep. Leonard Lance has represented the 7th Congressional District in New Jersey since 2008. He is the lead Republican sponsor of H.R. 2037, the Veterans Health Care Freedom Act, and H.R. 504, requiring the POW/MIA flag be displayed daily on federal property.
