Press Release

WASHINGTON – Today, Chairman Mark Takano (CA-41) announced the Vice Chair and Subcommittee assignments for the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs during the 116th Congress.

"I look forward to working with newly selected Vice Chair Conor Lamb (PA-17) and Subcommittee Chairs, Representatives Julia Brownley (CA-26), Mike Levin (CA-49), Chris Pappas (NH-01), Elaine Luria (VA-02), and Susie Lee (NV-03), and I welcome their leadership and enthusiasm. 

"In this Congress our committee will focus on addressing the needs of underserved veterans and improving access to care and benefits for all of those who have served our country. We will fight to prevent unaccountable individuals from exerting their influence on VA, protect whistleblowers, and work to create a culture within VA that assures we recruit and retain the best employees and clinicians to serve our veterans. I welcome the opportunity to take on these challenges, build on our history of bipartisanship, and live up to the promise we have made to our nation's veterans."
