Keep the Promise to Our Veterans. According to the California Department of Veterans Affairs, the Golden State is home to an estimated 1,844,803 veterans. It is imperative that we meet the needs of California veterans. On the Assembly Budget Committee, Dan made the motion to keep our promise and to fund the completion of the Veterans Home in Redding and Fresno.
In Congress, Dan will continue standing behind those who have served in the armed forces and give those in uniform all the tools they need to protect themselves and keep us safe.
Eliminating Barriers for Veterans. Currently, due to backlog, there is a reported 18 month delay for returning veterans seeking disability claim with the Department of Veterans Affairs. Delays of this nature are inexcusable and demand our highest attention.
