- NEW HOUSE BILL ENSURES CALIFORNIA VETS THAT WERE OVERPAID WOULD NOT HAVE TO REPAY - November 21, 2016
Vets Affected By Calif. National Guard Bonus Debacle Would Not Owe Government Under House Bill
By Kellie Lunney, Government Executive
Veterans who received improper reenlistment bonuses from the California National Guard would not have to pay the money back to the Defense Department under a new House bill.
The legislation, supported by several House Republicans mostly from California, would ensure that those who served in the California National Guard and were overpaid by recruiters between 2004 and 2010 would not have to reimburse the government, unless they committed fraud or did not meet service requirements. The bill also would return with interest any repayments those veterans already have made, would require Defense to notify credit agencies that the debt was not valid, and would provide financial assistance to those who need it.
