President Trump Signs Law for Major Reform at VA Hospitals
It also protects those who uncover misconduct and wrongdoing in the agency
NATIONAL — President Trump signed a bill into law that begins major reform at VA Hospitals across the country.
The Department of Veterans Affairs Accountability and Whistleblower Protection Act gives VA leadership more power when it comes to firing employees at any level who are not up to standards.
It also protects those who uncover misconduct and wrongdoing in the agency.
Senator Hoeven, who co-sponsored the bill, says the reform is necessary to make sure our veterans are well taken care of.
“The Fargo VA does a great job of taking care of veterans. Some of the health care centers around the country don’t,” said Sen. Hoeven. “This legislation is all about making sure we have accountability at the VA and ensure that our veterans get quality health care.”
President Trump said reforming the VA was one of his top priorities during his campaign and vows the scandal that shed light on issues at the VA “never happen again”.
