This Just In… VA Budget Act Signed

President Obama Signs the Veterans Health Care Budget Reform and Transparency Act of 2009
On October 22, 2009 President Obama signed the Veterans Health Care Budget Reform and Transparency Act of 2009, calling it “the most significant victory for veterans in a generation”. This legislation ensures that the Department of Veterans Affairs can continue to provide adequate funding for health care benefits, facilities, and programs, even through years when Congress has yet to approve a budget. This bill was designed to avoid lapses in funding, allowing Congress to authorize advance funds to meet the demands of the health care services provided by the VA to over 7.84 millionVA health care enrollees. According to Arthur Wilson of the Disabled American Veterans Organization (DAV), “with funding assured, VA Hospital and clinic directors will no longer have to delay the hiring of new doctors or nurses, or the purchase of new medical equipment, due to Confgress’ failure to approve a budget on time…” (Reuters, 10/22/2009).
