U.S. Congressman Rick Allen (R-GA-12) voted in favor of S. 1094, the Department of Veterans Affairs Accountability and Whistleblower Protection Act of 2017 today. This legislation will give America’s veterans the quality medical care they deserve by holding bad actors at the VA accountable. Congressman Allen issued the following statement:

“Americans have heard far too many stories about the failures at the Department of Veterans Affairs in the past few years, and there are many VA employees who have not been held accountable for their actions. Today we have taken an important step to provide our nation’s heroes with the best treatment possible. This bill creates a new process for VA employees to be fired for wrongdoing or incompetency.

In the 12th district of Georgia, we have two VA hospitals that are invaluable to our veterans who need quality medical care. I hear from veterans across my district about the quality care they receive, and I am proud to support this legislation that will put all VA hospitals on track to providing the best care possible for veterans. The next stop for this important bill is President Trump’s desk, and I look forward to the day when this is the law of the land.”
