A bill introduced by Congressman Chet Edwards has made it past the House.

It will direct nearly 120 billion dollars for military construction and veterans affairs.

The measure won't go into effect until the 2009 fiscal year.

Edwards says it'll not only have a national impact, but also a positive impact on the quality of care Texas veterans get in VA hospitals.
