Before the Senate Committee on Veterans’ Affairs Concerning 16 Bills on Health Care Issues for Veterans

May 23, 2007
Chairman Akaka, Ranking Member Craig, and members of the Senate Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, Vietnam Veterans of America (VVA) appreciates the opportunity to testify before you here today.  On behalf of our officers, our Board of Directors, our members and their families, we want to thank you for the important work you are doing, and the initiatives you are taking, on behalf of our nation’s veterans.

We would like to focus our comments this morning on four of the bills up for your consideration that we endorse:  S. 117, the “Lane Evans Veterans Health and Benefits Improvement Act of 2007”; S. 479, the “Joshua Omvig Veterans Suicide Prevention Act”; S. 1233, the “Veterans Traumatic Brain Injury Rehabilitation Act of 2007”; and, most assuredly, S. 1147, the “Honor Our Commitment to Veterans Act.”  And also one bill, S. 815, the “Veterans Health Care Empowerment Act of 2007,” that we feel will only serve to undermine the VA health care system.
