House bill directs TSA to give unclaimed clothes to homeless vets


Instead of letting the airlines profit again on their customers? What a smart and sensible idea. Oh look, a woman introduced it!

The House will likely consider a bill next week that would give homeless veterans unclaimed clothing recovered at U.S. airports.

The Clothe a Homeless Hero Act would direct the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) to transfer all unclaimed clothing recovered at airports to local veterans organizations or other local charitable organizations for distribution to homeless or needy veterans and their families.

Rep. Kathy Hochul (D-N.Y.) introduced H.R. 6328this summer.

Del. Madeleine Bordallo (D-Guam) is co-sponsoring the legislation.
