Contested VA reform bill going up for debate in House
from Stars and Stripes
The House is set to debate veterans legislation containing contentious reform on how Department of Veterans Affairs employees are demoted and fired. In the bill, called the VA Accountability First and Appeals Modernization Act, are measures to do away with a lengthy appeals process, allowing the VA to fire employees more quickly. Also packaged in the bill is a set of new rules intending to shorten veterans’ waits to appeal a denial of disability benefits.
