Dam Maffei Applauds Passage of Veterans' Access to Care Bill
WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Representative Dan Maffei today released the following statement applauding the House passage of the bipartisan Veterans’ Access to Care through Choice, Accountability, and Transparency Act of 2014, H.R. 3230.
“Ensuring our veterans have access to high-quality care and benefits should never be a partisan issue. I was proud to vote for H.R. 3230 today and applaud my colleagues on both sides of the aisle for doing the right thing and passing this legislation, which will bring much-needed accountability and reform measures to the Department of Veterans Affairs. It is completely unacceptable that veterans across the country have been forced to wait for the health care benefits they have earned for their service to our country, and this bipartisan bill is an important step to bringing real reform to the VA. There is much work left to do to address the systemic problems within the VA, and I will continue to work with both Democrats and Republicans to ensure that no veteran is left behind.”
