The VA Mission Bill, which is designed to expand health care access for American veterans and create greater accountability at the Department of Veterans Affairs, is now law.

U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., chairman of the Senate Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, Wednesday applauded the president’s signing into law landmark legislation he authored. The signing took place less than a week after Sen. Isakson sat down with members of the media in Atlanta to discuss the highlights of the legislation.

The John S. McCain III, Daniel K. Akaka and Samuel R. Johnson VA Maintaining Internal Systems and Strengthening Integrated Outside Networks (MISSION) Act, called the VA MISSION Act for short, is a bipartisan bill that Isakson worked on for more than 18 months and is the 16th veterans bill signed into law since January 2017.
