LATEST SENATOR TESTER
(U.S. Senate) – The Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee today voted overwhelmingly to bring Ranking Member Jon Tester’s bipartisan VA accountability reform bill one step closer to becoming law.
Tester’s bill will hold the Department of Veterans’ Affairs more accountable to veterans by allowing VA Secretary David Shulkin to fire bad employees faster and protect whistleblowers from retaliation.
“This bipartisan bill is a product of compromise that will allow the VA to hold bad actors accountable while protecting due process and hardworking VA employees,” said Tester. “Commonsense solutions like this will make the VA stronger for Montana veterans, and I look forward to seeing this bill signed into law with support from Republicans and Democrats.”
