WASHINGTON, D.C. --- Congressman Leonard Lance (NJ-07) today released the following statement following passage of the bipartisan compromise on reforming the Veterans Adminstration, the Veterans’ Access to Care through Choice, Accountability, and Transparency Act:

“This is the first step in a long road to true transformation of the Veterans Administration that must restore the confidence our Nation’s heroes have lost in the desperately broken bureaucracy.  Today’s package will immediately allow veterans experiencing long wait-times to have access to the timely and high quality care they need and deserve, make critical improvements to facilities, hold executives and managers accountable for poor performance and hire more doctors and staff with expertise in PTSD, brain injuries and sexual assault.  The brave men and women who have stepped forward to serve our Nation deserve our continued dedication to fixing the V.A. and ensuring they receive the services they have earned in our defense.”
