A committee from both houses of Congress has negotiated a bipartisan package to reform the Veterans' Administration. The chief aim of the package is to improve veterans' access to medical care, which has been the subject of scandals at several VA medical centers, most recently in Phoenix.
Nevada Congresswoman Dina Titus is a member of the committee, and she told KNPR that the bill will make it easier for veterans to get faster access to the medical care the VA already offers. The bill also provides for GI Bill benefits for surviving spouses of veterans and sexual assault counseling for National Guard members.

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for. If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
