Serving Veterans Since


The Sergeant First Class Heath Robinson Honoring Our Promise to Address Comprehensive Toxins Act of 2022, also known as the PACT Act, is a bill that directly addresses the impact on Veterans and others who were exposed to environmental toxins, burn pits, radiation, and Agent Orange due to their time in service. The PACT Act also includes the Camp Lejeune Justice Act.

The bill is named in honor of Sergeant First Class Heath Robinson, an Ohio National Guard service member who died in 2020 due to exposure to toxic chemicals. This bill is a bipartisan effort to expand VA benefits, coverage, treatments, and resources for sick Veterans and others who were impacted by toxins during their service in the U.S. military. The bill passed Congress on August 2, 2022, and was signed into law on August 10th, 2022.

What Does the PACT Act Do for Veterans?

The PACT Act will make monumental changes to allow greater care for Veterans and others who have been impacted by exposure to harmful toxins while also improving the VA healthcare process and ability to determine presumptive conditions due to harmful exposure. We’ve outlined some of the important updates of this legislation below.
