Washington, D.C. – Rep. Bruce Braley (IA-01) today released the following statement after the announcement of a bipartisan reform package, meant to address problems within the Veterans Affairs Administration, had been agreed to by Senate VA Committee Chairman Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and House VA Committee Chairman Jeff Miller (R-Fla):

“I’ll review this package ahead of a vote later this week, but a bipartisan compromise is exactly what needed to happen,” Braley said. “Our veterans deserve high quality, efficient, and easy-to-access to care—and I’m very hopeful that this legislation moves us toward that goal while addressing the glaring misconduct that was recently exposed.”

 

Braley had previously endorsed the framework outlined in the Senate package formulated by Senators Sanders and McCain (R-Ariz).
