LATEST SENATOR DONNELLY
Washington, D.C. – Today, bipartisan legislation to hold wrongdoers at the Department of Veterans Affairs accountable for its treatment of veterans passed the Senate. The VA Accountability and Whistleblower Protection Act, supported by U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly, would make it easier for the VA to fire employees guilty of misconduct or wrongdoing, would prohibit bonuses to employees guilty of wrongdoing, and would protect whistleblowers who report wrongdoing.
Donnelly said, “Veterans in Indiana and across our country deserve a VA that is responsive, efficient and accountable. This bipartisan legislation would make needed changes at the VA: it would hold bad actors responsible while protecting whistleblowers and the vast majority of VA employees – many of whom are veterans themselves – who work day-in and day-out to provide our veterans with the best care and support possible.”
