President Obama Signs the Veterans Health Care Budget Reform and Transparency Act

Friday, October 23, 2009

President Obama signed the Veterans Health Care Budget Reform and Transparency Act into law today (also known as "advanced funding"). If multi-year planning was vital to a 300-Soldier battalion’s success at a training exercise, it is exponentially more critical to a Department like Veterans Affairs—which serves millions of our nation’s Veterans each day. Until today, VA had not had the ability to plan its budget in advance—and a late budget meant that VA couldn’t effectively plan. But today, that has all changed. While VA has consistently provided world class health care to our Veterans, having advanced appropriations will now allow us the ability to raise that care to an even higher standard.
