Representative Mike Coffman (R-CO)
Representative Ann Kirkpatrick (D-AZ)

Chairman Jeff Miller:

“Over the last week and a half, reports about the security of data maintained by the Department of Veterans Affairs have made it clear that the most sensitive data of our veterans and their dependents is not safe on VA’s IT network.”

“The breach in security of our veterans’ most sensitive data and VA’s conflicting statements as to whether or not its network was hacked are issues the committee does not take lightly.”

Ranking Member Mike Michaud:

“As VA works hard to serve the needs of our veterans who earned their benefits, the VA has a responsibility to work just as hard to protect their personal information. Chairman Miller and I are united in our concern over this issue, and in our commitment to getting to a solution for our veterans”
