Washington, D.C. ­ House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) released the following statement on House passage of S. 114, the VA Choice and Quality Employment Act:

“The VA Choice program has directly helped veterans who would otherwise face dire wait times in VA facilities to finally receive timely medical care conveniently in their own communities. Ultimately, it shouldn’t matter where veterans get care as long as they get the care they need. With the extension of this program, we can build on the progress we’ve already made reforming the VA until every single veteran gets the health care we promised them.”
