I’m always thinking about what we can do to go out there and ensure veterans get the best possible care, and when bills pass, I always want to get you the news as soon as possible.
So, this week the House voted to pass:
- The Whole Veteran Act to give veterans more control over their own physical and mental care
- The Vet Center Eligibility Expansion Act to expand access to care for veterans who served during a national emergency
- The FIGHT Veteran Suicide Act to better understand and help prevent veterans suicide
- The Veterans’ Education, Transition, and Opportunity Prioritization Plan Act to manage veterans benefits programs and aid servicemembers’ return to civilian life
Passing these bills is a step towards improving care for veterans, but there is always more that can be done - and I won’t stop fighting until veterans have access to the very best care our country has to offer.
