Westerman Votes to Hold VA Accountable
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WASHINGTON – Congressman Bruce Westerman (R-Hot Springs) voted Wednesday (July 29) for the VA Accountability Act of 2015. Following approval of the bill, Westerman issued the following statement:
“Today, I voted for the VA Accountability Act. Almost 250,000 Arkansas veterans trust the public servants at the Veterans Administration to provide the benefits they earned while bravely serving our country,” Westerman said. “I know that when the public’s trust is betrayed, real people get hurt. The VA Accountability Act holds public servants accountable for the quality of their work and allows the VA to remove or punish employees based on poor performance or misconduct. Through measures such as these, we can ensure that our veterans receive the care they deserve."
