The Improving Veterans Access To Congressional Services Act
Serving veterans in our community is not only deeply personal to me, it’s also the most frequent request that I get as a Member of Congress.
Opening the first-ever Congressional office inside a VA hospital has allowed us to help veterans on the spot: when and where they’re having an issue. I believe every single Member of Congress should do the same at their local VA. That's why I introduced The Improving Veterans Access to Congressional Services Act to pave the way to make that high level of service a reality for our veterans all across the country.
This bill will cut down on bureaucracy by requiring the Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs to permit a Member of Congress to use a VA facility to meet with constituents.
The Improving Veterans Access to Congressional Services Act also requires the Department of Veterans Affairs to develop regulations regarding the use of VA office space by Members of Congress, mandating that the space be made available during normal business hours and in a location that is easily accessible to the Member’s constituents.
