Lawmakers turn up the heat on the VA to explain how it'll reduce its 125,000 claim backlog
from Task & Purpose
House lawmakers are turning up the heat on the Department of Veterans Affairs after it failed to provide them with a plan for safely cutting down on its increasing backlog of disability compensation & pension exams. In a letter sent to VA Secretary Robert Wilkie, five Democratic lawmakers expressed their frustration with the department's lack of transparency on the issue so far. The letter comes nearly three weeks after the department did not participate in a virtual forum about the issue hosted by Rep. Elaine Luria, D-Va., chair of the Subcommittee on Disability Assistance and Memorial Affairs, on May 27.
