Bipartisan Coalition of Attorneys General Offer Support for the GUARD Act

On August 8, 2023, four Attorneys General from the states of California; Illinois; Ohio; and Tennessee, co-sponsored a letter in support of the Governing Unaccredited Representatives Defrauding VA Benefits Act (the GUARD Act).  It was signed by 40 other Attorneys General from across the United States.

The G.U.A.R.D. Act, if passed, would hold unaccredited bad actors accountable for their actions in charging fees for initial claims and protect veterans from being scammed.  This act would reinstate criminal penalties for unaccredited and unregulated representatives.
