Rep. Gary Palmer (R-AL), voted for H.R. 1994, the VA Accountability Act of 2015, which passed the House today. The bill is aimed at remedying some of the abuses that have been revealed as part of the Veteran's Affairs (VA) scandal.
"Our military veterans deserve our very best," Palmer said. "The scandals at the VA demonstrate they have instead received some of our worst. This is wrong."
"Correcting misconduct requires that people are held accountable for misbehavior. This bill will ensure greater accountability for VA employees by allowing for timely dismissal of employees who engage in misconduct, while ensuring whistleblower protection."
