Today, the U.S. House of Representatives continued its work to ensure quality care for Armed Forces veterans by passing H.R. 1994, the “VA Accountability Act,” granting the Secretary of the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (VA) increased flexibility in removing poorly performing VA employees. Last year Congress passed – and the President signed into law – the “Veterans Access, Choice, and Accountability Act (VACAA),” which enacted a number of changes to programs and policies of the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) to increase access and reduce wait times at VA facilities. The passage of today’s bill builds upon those efforts.
