Veterans Affairs Secretary David J. Shulkin Statement on House Passage of

S. 114, the VA Choice and Quality Employment Act

Today, Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary David J. Shulkin released the below statement following House Passage of S. 114, the VA Choice and Quality Employment Act.

I thank the leadership of the House and Senate Committees on Veterans Affairs’, Chairman Phil Roe and Ranking Member Tim Walz and Chairman Johnny Isakson and Ranking Member Jon Tester,  for their great work on this bill, resulting in a unanimous vote in the House.  This will make a real difference in improving VA’s capacity for delivering care to our Veterans, particularly by adding much needed funding for the Veterans Choice Program.   I look forward to the Senate acting on the bill before the August recess.
