  • Fact Sheet - - - Final Rules on Religious and Moral Exemptions and Accommodation for Coverage of Certain Preventive Services Under the Affordable Care Act

    Statement by Acting U.S. Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert Wilkie

    Introduction of H.R. 5674, the VA MISSION Act



    I commend Chairman Roe and the House Veterans’ Affairs Committee for introducing legislation that, as Chairman Roe so aptly states, “will ensure veterans have timely access to the care they have earned.”
