Scott Statement on the Veterans Health Care Bill Becoming Law

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) sent below statement after the President signed the VA Mission Act into law earlier this afternoon:

“After sacrificing so much throughout their military careers, our veterans should have access to high quality care,” said Scott. “The current VA healthcare program still has unacceptable wait times and falls short of providing the care our veterans have both earned and deserve. The VA Mission Act is designed to fix current inefficiencies that will cut wait times, streamline services, and provide better care. It also expands a much needed caregiver program. I was proud to vote for this important legislation last month and am incredibly grateful to see it become law today.”
