Senate approves bill to aid vets exposed to toxic burn pits

A bill enhancing health care and disability benefits for millions of veterans exposed

ending a brief stalemate over the measure that had infuriated advocates

and inspired some to camp outside the Capitol.

The Senate passed the bill by a vote of 86 to 11.

It is now going to the seat of President Joe Biden for signature.

He said the bill "extends our sacred duty to take care of ex-servicemen and their families.

The Senate approved the bill in June

but technical improvements had to be made.

The deal fell through when Republicans tried to change the second part of the bill 

last week and block it from going forward.
