Committee Passes 11 Bills, Including Key VA Accountability Legislation

Today, House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs Chairman Mike Bost (R-Ill.), released the following statement after the Committee reported 11 bills to be considered on the House Floor:

“To close out the summer session, our Committee reported eleven bills out to effectively address veteran homelessness, continue our commitment to improving TAP, expand access to home based care for aging veterans, increase access to mental health resources for caregivers, protect deployed servicemembers USERRA rights, and more. Each of these bills would have a direct impact on veterans, Reservists and National Guardsmen, veteran caregivers, and their families,” said Chairman Bost. “I am especially proud to see my Restore VA Accountability Act reported out of our Committee today. My bill is in response to the brave whistleblowers who have been coming to our Committee since the start of the new Republican majority. Under my leadership, we won’t turn a blind eye to them sounding the alarm on bad employees hurting the delivery of care and services to veterans at VA. Instead, we’ll fix it and provide the Secretary with the tools they need to appropriately hold employees accountable. I look forward to considering it, along with these other good proposals on the House Floor as soon as possible.”
