This week I announced legislation to declare a federal emergency when the U.S. Army Corps causes damaging harmful algal blooms. Our bill, the Federal Do No Harm Act, provides federal assistance for disaster cleanup, including the removal of toxic algal biomass and muck from affected waterways.
Our veterans who have served our country - risked life and limb for the United States of America - deserve choice when it comes to their health care. That's why this week we passed legislation to eliminate the sunset of the Veterans Choice Program.
Watch our Week In Review video to hear about a bill we introduced to keep Jewish Community Centers safe, hearings we held to improve the water quality in our area, a bill we passed in committee to combat anti-Semitism and steps we're taking to ensure rail safety.
Over the last several months, one of my top priorities has been listening to people in our community about how they will be impacted by health care reform. I hope my colleagues on both sides of the aisle will join me in working to improve our nation’s healthcare system.
It's important for veterans to come together and for the VA to establish and maintain expertise in providing our unique healthcare needs. Unfortunately, too many VA facilities have lost their hunger to provide our care.
