May 16, 2018
Press Release

Congressman Kevin McCarthy released the following statement after House passage of the VA Maintaining Internal Systems and Strengthening Integrated Outside Networks Act (the VA MISSION Act of 2018):

“This legislation is part of our country’s fulfillment of gratitude to the over 21 million veterans who have served and protected the United States. This Congress has worked to return the VA to its core mission of service and to make sure we, as Americans, keep our promises to provide for our veterans. And today, the House stood together by passing the VA MISSION Act to make sure our nation’s heroes have access to the care they need in a timely and complete manner. This bill will increase options and access to care at the VA and throughout our communities – including at walk-in clinics that may be more convenient and immediate in addressing the health needs of our veterans. Our veterans deserve timely and accessible care while we continue to reform the VA so it reflects the best our country has to offer for their service
