McMorris Rodgers: Protecting Eastern Washington Veterans

WASHINGTON, D.C.— Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05), Chair of the House Republican Conference, released the following statement today in support of H.R. 4031, the Department of Veterans Affairs Management Accountability Act of 2014and H.R. 4370, the Veterans Information Security Improvement Act, both of which she is a co-sponsor. These two common-sense bills will reduce widespread mismanagement of U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs’ (VA) facilities and improve transparency and accountability.

“The servicemen and women at Fairchild Air Force Base and across Eastern Washington have made countless sacrifices for our nation. I am committed to ensuring those who have served our county receive the care, support, and benefits that they were promised and that they have earned. There is no excuse for poor management of VA facilities. By enabling the VA Secretary to remove ineffective management and burdensome staff, we can ensure our military heroes receive the excellent care they deserve with this legislation that will help the millions of veterans who depend on the VA for their hard-earned benefits.”
