Today, Chairman Phil Roe, M.D. (R-Tenn.) released the following statement following Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Secretary David Shulkin's press briefing on the State of the VA

“In today’s State of the VA address, Secretary Shulkin reaffirmed his and President Trump’s commitment to putting America’s veterans first and our shared priority of building a better VA. The House has already passed several pieces of legislation to improve the lives of our nation’s heroes, including legislation to expedite the appeals process, and we will continue working together to revamp the Choice program to expand access to quality and timely care. I thank Secretary Shulkin for his honest assessment of the challenges that lie ahead, and I look forward to continuing to work with the Trump Administration in our mission to bring wholesale reform to the department.”
