Roe Statement on President Trump's VA Secretary Announcement

Today, Rep. Phil Roe, M.D. (R-Tenn.), Chairman of the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, released the following statement after President Trump announced Acting VA Secretary Robert Wilkie as his nominee for VA Secretary:

“I've found Acting Secretary Wilkie to be accessible and knowledgeable since he stepped in after former VA Secretary Shulkin's departure. He has been instrumental in moving the VA MISSION Act through the House. While the Senate is responsible for the confirmation process, I commend President Trump for this selection and believe Acting Secretary Wilkie would be an effective permanent secretary.”
