The VA Accountability Act builds on the Veterans Access, Choice and Accountability Act of 2014—which gave the VA secretary authority to more easily fire incompetent, negligent senior VA executives—and expands that authority to include all VA employees, regardless of their rank. This legislation also increases protections for whistleblowers.
