  • Senate Passes Bipartisan Veterans Affairs Reform Legislation

    The Senate today passed a bipartisan compromise to restore accountability at the Department of Veterans Affairs and reduce wait times at VA facilities so veterans can get the health care they deserve. The Veterans' Access to Care Through Choice, Accountability, and Transparency Act of 2014 brings immediate accountability to the VA that will strengthen the Department's ability to fire senior managers and officials responsible for poor performance at VA health facilities. It also takes steps to reduce wait times and clear the backlog, including hiring more doctors and nurses in the VA system and providing expanding options for care for those veterans who live in rural areas or experience excessive wait times.
