Congress Finally Passes COLA For Vets - Now Headed to the President

It seems like all the panicked talk about veterans losing their annual cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) this year was for naught.

Early this week the Senate took a voice vote and passed HR 4114: Veterans’ Compensation Cost-of-Living Adjustment Act of 2012 which should take effect on Dec. 1 of this year. This bill was passed by the House back in early July, and put aside by the Senate for unknown reasons in September.
