VA chief withdraws Staab appeal; vows to replace 'IU' pay cut, too
from The Military Advantage Blog
VA Secretary David Shulkin made two surprise announcements before the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee that should relieve some financial stress for more than 600,000 veterans. First, Shulkin said he was dropping VA's appeal of the Staab case decided last year by the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims. Only recdntly he said Staab had been wrongly decided, exposing VA to at least $2 billion in veteran claims for outside emergency care, money VA needed to provide promised services.
