CRAMER: VA Accountability Bill Becomes Law
Recording: Audio Quote
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Kevin Cramer issued the following statement after President Donald Trump signed the Department of Veterans Affairs Accountability and Whistleblower Protection Act of 2017 into law:
“The signing of the Department of Veterans Affairs Accountability and Whistleblower Protection Act demonstrates our commitment, and the President’s commitment, to providing better care for the men and women who have served in our nation’s military,” said Cramer. “Most VA employees provide admirable, if not excellent, care and I applaud their service to our veterans. However, it’s just unacceptable to not hold bad actors accountable, and this legislation allows the VA Secretary to better address misconduct in the agency and it strengthens whistleblower protections, resulting in better care for veterans.”
The House of Representatives passed the bill on June 13. Read more about the bill here.
