Daines Applauds House Passage of His Bill to Award Service Members Killed in Afghanistan with the Congressional Gold Medal

U.S. SENATE — Today, the U.S. House of Representatives passed U.S. Senator Steve Daines’ bill to award the 13 service members killed during President Biden’s failed withdrawal from Afghanistan with Congressional Gold Medals. Daines applauded House passage of the bill and is working to pass it in the United States Senate.

“I’m glad to see the House of Representatives pass my bipartisan bill to honor and recognize the sacrifice that these brave young men and women made during a pivotal point for our nation. Now it’s time for the United States Senate to pass my bill to show that we stand united with the American heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice to protect fellow Americans and our freedoms,” Daines said.

Daines introduced his bipartisan bill in the Senate in September.
