CVA Applauds House Passage of VA Accountability Act
Critical Legislation Now Moves To Senate
Arlington, Va. – Today, Concerned Veterans for America (CVA) CEO Pete Hegseth issued the following statement following the passage of the VA Accountability Act in the House of Representatives by a vote of 256-170:
“CVA is pleased the VA Accountability Act passed the House and we applaud the members who stood up and supported this commonsense and bipartisan piece of legislation that is essential to fixing the VA’s toxic culture. The VA Accountability Act now moves to the Senate and we urge the Senate to take up this bill immediately upon their return from the August recess.
“We were disappointed that many members of Congress ultimately voted against the VA Accountability Act – including many of those who have repeatedly decried the lack of accountability within the Department of Veterans Affairs. Clearly, many of these members caved to pressure from Washington special interests who are more interested in protecting bad VA bureaucrats than reforming the VA. Accordingly, CVA will not hesitate to hold these members accountable for their votes against this important piece of legislation.”
