Tipton Votes to Improve Healthcare for America's Veterans
WASHINGTON D.C. — Congressman Scott Tipton (CO-03) voted in support of the Enhancing Veteran Care Act (S. 1266), which would help improve healthcare for America’s veterans. This legislation passed the House with bipartisan support.
The Enhancing Veteran Care Act would authorize the Secretary of Veterans Affairs (VA) to enter into contracts with nonprofit organizations, allowing them to investigate VA medical centers and assess the deficiencies of the center’s facilities.
“Our veterans have done so much in service of our nation, making it imperative that we serve them once they return home,” said Tipton. “While VA medical centers do so much to assist our nation’s heroes, we unfortunately still hear stories about our veterans not receiving the quality care they deserve. By allowing contractors to identify the exact areas where VA medical centers could improve, they will be better equipped to take appropriate action. I thank Senator Inhofe for his leadership on this issue, and I look forward to seeing this legislation signed into law by the President.”
