This Month in CBC History: Corrine Brown Advocates for Women Veterans’ Rights to Better Healthcare

Congresswoman Corrine Brown has represented the 3rd Congressional District of Florida since January 5, 1993 and has unapologetically fought for veterans affairs. On June 25th in 1996 Representative Corrine Brown (FL) introduced three amendments that called on the United States to improve research and health care services for women who served in the armed forced. The first two bills, Women Veterans Research Act of 1996 (H.R 3712) and Women Veterans Health Equity Act of 1996 (H.R 3713) addressed the caliber of services that were being offered to women veterans. Rep. Brown also introduced H.R. 3711 which called for an assessment of the healthcare services provided. From 1996 until now Rep. Corrine Brown continues to champion the issues of veteran affairs and has served as a Ranking Member on the Oversight and Investigation Subcommittee of Veterans Affairs.
