Press Release


WASHINGTON -- Congressman Bruce Westerman (R-Hot Springs) issued the following statement Friday (May 15) following passage of the NDAA, the National Defense Authorization Act of 2015:

“My vote today for the National Defense Authorization Act was a vote to protect America from those who may seek to harm this great nation. It was also a vote in support of our veterans, streamlining medical treatment from their time in service to our nation to their life outside of the military. For far too long, veterans have had to pay out of pocket for prescriptions subscribed during their time in the military since the V.A. did not always cover the same medications. Passage of this bill eliminates the discrepancies in care for those in the military and veterans of the service while continuing to secure the nation.”
