Washington, D.C. – Monday, on Gold Star Spouses Day, U.S. Representative Green introduced the Protecting Gold Star Spouses Act. The bill, which Green introduced previously in the 116th Congress, ensures that no Gold Star family will ever miss a payment during a lapse in Federal appropriations.
Representative Green said, “It’s our duty and our honor to take care of America’s Gold Star spouses and families. Our Gold Star spouses and families should never worry about whether the Federal government will fulfill its obligation to them—even during a lapse in appropriations or government shutdown. Freedom is never free.”

Green’s second amendment would have preserved President Trump’s border wall and blocked the Joe Biden Administration from rolling back the progress President Donald Trump made in securing our southern border.
