House, Senate Veterans Committee Chairmen and Ranking Members Announce VSO Hearings
Today, House and Senate Committees on Veterans’ Affairs Chairmen Phil Roe, M.D. (R-Tenn.) and Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.), along with Ranking Members Tim Walz (D-Minn.) and Jon Tester (D-Mont.) announced upcoming bicameral hearings with Veterans Service Organizations (VSOs).

The members released the following statements:

“Veterans Service Organizations are critical advocates for our nation’s heroes,” said Chairman Roe. “I look forward to hearing their legislative priorities and ideas for VA reform.”

“Our Veterans Service Organizations work tirelessly on behalf of our nation’s veterans,” said Chairman Isakson. “I am grateful for their commitment to working together with Congress and the VA to ensure veterans have the best possible care and support that they deserve.”

“Maintaining strong relationships with Veterans Service Organizations is a critical step in achieving results for those who have served. Their perspective and experience is second to none,” said Ranking Member Walz. “I look forward to continuing our conversation in order to improve and expand veteran-centered care in communities across the United States.”

“Congress should be taking its cues from America’s veterans,” said Ranking Member Tester. “Veterans Service Organizations provide important perspective on how veterans are affected by VA policies and I look forward to hearing their recommendations on how to hold the VA accountable, improve access to timely and quality care, and ensure veterans and their families are provided the benefits they have earned.”
