WASHINGTON, D.C. —Last night, the House of Representatives unanimously passed all three bipartisan bills brought to the floor by the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs. Even as the 116th Congress comes to a close, the Committee has continued its critical oversight and legislative work—the bills passed today showcase that commitment to veterans and their families by increasing accessibility for disabled veterans across all of VA’s websites, files, and apps, naming the VA Clinic in Bozeman, Montana in honor of Travis W. Atkins, and improving patient safety and quality of care at VA. 

Full list of passed legislation:

1. S. 3587, Department of Veterans Affairs Website Accessibility Act of 2019 (Sen. Casey)

2. S. 900, To designate the community-based outpatient clinic of the Department of Veterans Affairs in Bozeman, Montana, as the "Travis W. Atkins Department of Veterans Affairs Clinic," as amended (Sen. Daines)
