In response to the ever-growing list of problems at the Department of Veterans Affairs, Congressman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) today sponsored new legislation to help ensure our nation’s heroes get the care they deserve.

The VA Accountability First and Appeals Modernization Act of 2016 (H.R. 5620) will increase accountability at the agency by making it easier to dismiss misbehaving or negligent employees, by bolstering protections for whistle-blowers, and by reforming the agency’s disability benefits appeals process.

The new bill comes in the wake of a heartbreaking study on data from the Department of Veterans Affairs which showed 20 veterans commit suicide every day and after widely-reported scandals in which it was revealed that Department of Veterans Affairs medical facilities were regularly cancelling appointments and falsifying wait times, preventing the nation’s heroes from obtaining the care they need.
