Casey Statement on Passage of Comprehensive Veterans Legislation in the Senate

Washington, DC –U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) released the following statement after the Senate passed the Veterans’ Access to Care through Choice, Accountability, and Transparency Act of 2014:

“I’m pleased that the Senate was able to come together and pass the legislation that Senator Sanders and Senator McCain crafted, which will work to provide our veterans with the care and services they deserve. I’m proud to support this bipartisan legislation that will create more accountability in the VA health system, hire more doctors and nurses and provide resources for veterans and their spouses to attain a quality education. This is only a start and we need to continue to work to pass bipartisan legislation that will assist our veterans and their families.  We need to continue to look for ways to address the claims backlog, as well as employment, education and other healthcare issues that are important to our veterans and their families.”
