Senator Portman to hold townhall meeting with Northwest Ohio Veterans

See also

On Friday, June 27, 2014, U.S. Senator Rob Portman (R-Ohio) will host a townhall meeting with Northwest Ohio veterans. Portman will discuss the backlog of benefit claims, the recent findings of fraudulent management of the Veterans Health Administration (VHA), and the needed reforms at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).

Portman recently voted in favor of the Veterans’ Access to Care through Choice, Accountability, and Transparency Act of 2014. This bipartisan legislation will authorize a “choice card” for veterans so they can access health services outside the VA system if they cannot get an appointment in that system within the department’s wait-time goals, and provides that option to veterans residing more than 40 miles from a VA facility. It also authorizes the VA secretary to hold accountable members of the Senior Executive Service if the secretary determines the performance of the individual warrants it.
