House votes unanimously to extend VA Choice program for 6 months
After failing in the first try earlier this week, the House unanimously passed a $3.9 billion bill to extend the Veterans Choice Program on private care for six months. The 419-0 vote on the emergency spending measure came after the Senate worked out a deal with House negotiators to add an amendment to the bill on the leasing of 28 new VA facilities in 17 states to overcome the objections of the veterans service organizations.
