U.S. Senate passes bill to restore accountability, reduce wait times at Department of Veterans Affairs

Today, the United States Senate passed new legislation that will restore accountability at the Department of Veterans Affairs and reduce wait times at VA health care facilities. The Veterans’ Access to Care Through Choice, Accountability, and Transparency Act of 2014 will strengthen the Department’s ability to fire senior managers and officials responsible for poor performance at VA health facilities. It will also reduce wait times at VA health facilities by clearing backlogs and hiring more employees to provide expanded care for those that live in rural areas or experience extended wait times.
