Public Statements

Military Construction and Veterans Affairs and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2011

Floor Speech

Location: Washington, DC


Mr. DONNELLY of Indiana. Madam Chairman, I want to thank the chairman for his and his committee's work on this bill.

As we all know, there are veterans across the country, including thousands in my district, who are forced to drive long distances to receive the medical care they earned through their service to the Nation. But I understand that included in this bill is $15 million for the VA Health Care Center Advance Planning account, which would go toward new VA Health Care Centers, which could help these veterans.

I wonder if the chairman wouldn't mind going into some detail on this item.

I yield to the gentleman.
