What Can Veterans Expect From the Senate's proposed "Veteran's First Act"?

The Senate has revealed a bipartisan proposal known as the Veterans First Act that is directed at what can senates expe t blog reforming how things are done at the Veterans’ Administration. It has been two years since most of the VA’s leadership resigned over the scandal involving how our veterans are treated (or not treated as the case may be) by the VA. With continuing unacceptable wait times for both health care appointments and claims processing, a proposal that could address these problems is long overdue.

The Veterans First Act would make changes in how to remove ineffective employees, protect whistleblowers, expand programs for seriously injured veterans to receive care in their homes, streamline care through Veterans Choice programs allowing certain veterans to get care outside a VA facility, enhance mental health care options, address the VA’s huge backlog of disability claims, and much more.
