Miller speaks out for VA reform

Miller1
Rep. Jeff Miller, Chairman, House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs:

“The Department of Veterans Affairs is in the midst of an unprecedented crisis caused by corruption, mismanagement and a lack of accountability across the board. VA is in need of reform, and I applaud my colleagues in the House for passing legislation to do just that. The Veterans Access, Choice and Accountability Act of 2014 does three important things. First, it gets veterans off of waiting lists and helps provide them with the medical care they have earned. Second, it empowers the VA secretary to hold failing executives accountable. Finally, it starts a larger conversation about how we can reform the department so it will better serve veterans for years to come. This is an honest solution to an urgent problem. One that is focused on making government more accountable and providing veterans with real choice in their health care decisions. I urge my colleagues in the Senate to send this bill to the president’s desk in short order so we can start fixing what is now a broken bureaucracy.”

Here is the conference report that Congress passed this week: Report.
