Previous posted diary claims the GOP voted against HR466....
House Passes Congressman Doggett’s Wounded Veteran Job Security Act

On June 8, the House passed my Wounded Veteran Job Security Act to ensure no wounded veteran ever has to make the decision between getting well and getting paid. The bill amends existing law to establish the right of veterans who receive treatment for illness, injuries, and disabilities incurred in, or aggravated by, uniformed service to the United States to be retained by their employers. This bill is important to our commitment to our nation's veterans because battlefield injuries often don't end on the battlefield, and neither should our commitment to wounded warriors. The legislation is supported by many organizations, including the American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars, the Fleet Reserve Association, and Disabled American Veterans.

So...this was posted by the Bills sponsor....it appears that it passed the House, so I'm a little confused.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

  •  HR 1774 (0+ / 0-)

       A search done by Doggett - is HR1774.   It was referred to Committee - in 2013 and is busy dying a quick death.

         HR 466 = in related to Social Security number not being listed on Social Security Death Master file.

    •  HR 466 passed the House, not the Democratic Senate (0+ / 0-)

      It passed the House, not the Senate...the point is that it passed the republican majority held House....

        material you'd probably notice that Rep. Doggett's Wounded Veteran Job Security Act did indeed pass the House as H.R. 466, but not in this Congress. That was in the 111th Congress.

        The Congress, and thus the bill, expired before the bill passed the Senate.

        It was reintroduced into the 113th as H.R 1774 by Rep. Doggett where it was assigned to committee to die. govtrack.us estimates H.R. 1774 has a 1% chance of enactment..

        Does this help?
