Legislation Expands Private Care for Veterans
NGAUS Washington Report
May 22, 2018
Little opposition is expected for legislation that would provide veterans a wider choice for private medical care. The VA Mission Act, H.R. 5674, easily passed the House last week and has support in the Senate, including from the top Democrat on veterans issues, Sen. Jon Tester, D-Mont. The main sponsor of the bill is Rep. Phil Roe, R-Tenn., the chairman of the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs.
