After a unaminous 382-0 vote for approval in the House in December 2018, this bill failed to pass in the Senate after Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., went to the Senate floor and asked for unanimous consent to pass the bill. Unanimous consent expedites approval but can be stopped if one senator objects. Citing cost concerns, Sen. Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., chairman of the Senate Budget Committee, objected as did Mike Lee, R-Utah
Actually, the estimated cost to fund this bill for veterans is $1.1 billion over 10 years though some Republican senators said it could cost billions more.
