Press Release

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(WASHINGTON, D.C.) - Congressman Roger Marshall, M.D., issued the following statement after the House passed the VA Accountability Act:

"This bipartisan legislation will reform the VA by allowing the Secretary to fire underperforming employees, ensure appropriate protections for whistleblowers, and authorize the Secretary to directly appoint folks to critically important positions that need filled quickly.

Those that serve our nation are honored heroes. Unfortunately, the VA hasn’t always treated with the care, respect and honor they deserve. I'm thrilled at the passage of this bill, and by helping bring our treasured Veterans one step closer to the care they deserve."

The VA Accountability Act will now go to the the President's desk. To read more about the bill, click HERE.
