Brady Backs America’s Veterans
WASHINGTON, D.C. - This week, the House passed a set of bills designed to improve the VA's day to day operations serving Veterans. Following their passage, U.S. Congressman Kevin Brady (TX-08) issued the following statement:
Our men and women in uniform have sacrificed everything for their country and they deserve an effective, accountable VA that protects the rights they fought to defend. President Trump has made fulfilling our promises to vets a top priority and the Congress is stepping up to make it happen. These bills are a big step forward for veterans everywhere and I am proud to fight for the brave men and women who have fought for us.
Veterans 2nd Amendment Protection Act (H.R. 1181) - Ensures no veteran has their second amendment rights stripped away unless declared a danger to themselves or others by a court of law.
VA Accountability First Act of 2017 (H.R. 1259) - Ensures bad actors within the VA are held accountable by expediting the review process of firing, demoting or punishing VA employees.
VA Health Care Employees - Best Practices (H.R. 1367) - Ensures our veterans receive the best quality heath care and are treated by the very best providers and establishes new best practices for VA health care employees by correcting deficiencies within VA’s bureaucratic hiring process.
