WATCH: IAVA On Hand as President Signs Historic Legislation into Law
Posted by Terrell Frazier on October 22
On Thursday, October 22, President Obama signed into law the Veterans Health Care Budget Reform and Transparency Act (H.R. 1016). This critical legislation requires Congress to approve the health care budget for the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) at least one year in advance, providing timely, predictable funding for veterans’ health care. Advance Funding was IAVA’s top Legislative Priority for 2009 and the focus of our annual ‘Storm the Hill’ campaign at the start of the year. Veterans from all of the country worked for ten months to make this happen. IAVA’s Paul Rieckhoff and Patrick Campbell were both at the White House today with the President for this historic moment.
