Rep. Gosar Continues to Support Veterans as House Passes Important Legislation

May 24, 2017

WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Congressman Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S. (AZ-04) released the following statement after the House passed a collection of legislation to benefit our veterans with his support:

“We owe our veterans a great debt for their service,” said Congressman Gosar. “In our nation’s darkest hours, the members of our armed services have bravely fought to protect what we as Americans hold most dear—our freedom. Now, in their time of need, we owe it to them to make sure they receive the benefits they so rightfully deserve. The legislation the House passed this week takes great strides in addressing a broken Veterans Administration, holding them more accountable than ever and reforming a system in desperate need of repair, among other critical veteran issues. We can never fully repay those who have sacrificed so much for our country. Nevertheless, the eight bills we passed this week will undoubtedly improve the quality of life our veterans deserve.”

The following eight bills were passed Tuesday and will now go to the Senate for consideration:

  • H.R. 467, the VA Scheduling Accountability Act;
  • H.R. 1005, a bill to amend title 38, United States Code, to improve the provision of adult day health care services for veterans;
  • H.R. 1162, No Heroes Left Untreated Act;
  • H.R. 1329, Veterans’ Compensation Cost-of-Living Adjustment Act of 2017;
  • H.R. 1545, VA Prescription Data Accountability Act;
  • H.R 1725, Quicker Veterans Benefits Delivery Act of 2017;
  • H.R. 2052, the PRIVATE Act; and
  • H.R. 2288, Veterans Appeals Improvement and Modernization Act of 2017.
