Pelosi: 'We Are Leading the Way in Creating a Healthier America by Strengthening Health Care for Our Veterans'
Date:6/23/2009

SAN FRANCISCO, June 23 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued the following statement today on two pieces of legislation in the House to improve the quality of health care for veterans. The House is expected to approve both bills this evening.

"Today, the day after the 65th anniversary of the enactment of the GI Bill, the House of Representatives is considering two critical pieces of legislation to improve the quality of health care for America's heroes.

"The Veterans Health Care Budget Reform and Transparency will provide advance appropriations funding for the Department of Veterans Affairs health care services. Advanced funding for the VA will ensure sufficient, timely and predictable funding for care and benefits for those who have bravely served our country.

"The groundbreaking Women Veterans Health Care Improvement Act will expand and improve VA health care services for the increasing number of women veterans. The legislation will study the barriers to women veterans seeking health care, assess the current state of women's health care programs and enhance PTSD and other trauma programs at the VA specifically designed for women. With more women serving their country now than ever before, it is critical that the VA adequately provide the necessary services to meet their diverse needs.

"We are leading the way in creating a healthier America by strengthening health care for our veterans. I commend Chairman Bob Filner and Congresswoman Stephanie Herseth Sandlin for their tireless work steering these bills to the House floor today and I salute our Veterans' Service Organizations for advocating on behalf of our veterans and for these bills."
