Veterans’ Health Bill Compromise Set After Weekend Talks

A compromise struck by House and Senate negotiators on Sunday on veterans’ medical care legislation would provide $15 billion in up-front emergency funds to help ease lengthy wait times at VA medical facilities, according to plan summary obtained by CQ Roll Call.

Niels Lesniewski reports that the compromise proposal would permit veterans who cannot get medical services at a VA facility or live more than 40 miles away to seek outside medical treatment.

The measure also would provide additional funding for the hiring of new VA health system staff.

    Hey would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    Thanks for the sensible critique. Me & my neighbor were just preparing to do some research on this. We got a grab a book from our local library but I think I learned more from this post. I am very glad to see such excellent info being shared freely out there.

    Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any tips and hints for rookie blog writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.

    of course like your web-site however you have to test the spelling on quite a few of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling issues and I find it very bothersome to tell the truth on the other hand I’ll definitely come back again.
