These days it is difficult to find bipartisan agreement on big issues. However, supporting our veterans and military families is an issue which tends to bring the political realm together at all levels – federal, state and local. Last week, Congress and the Trump Administration took great strides in providing that support.

The House of Representatives passed S. 2372, the VA MISSION Act of 2018 by a vote of 347-70. This legislation would fundamentally transform elements of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) healthcare system and fulfill the President’s commitment to provide veterans with more choice in their healthcare providers. This legislation is the product of discussions between the President, the Department of Veterans Affairs and Congressional leaders. It is expected to be passed by the Senate and signed into law by President Trump in the coming weeks.
