As Bipartisan Support For VA Bill Grows, Rubio Continues Fight For Reform

May 28, 2014 | Press Releases

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), the Senate’s original sponsor of S. 2013, the VA Management Accountability Act of 2014, issued the following statement pointing to the bill’s growing bipartisan support and today’s Veterans Affairs (VA) inspector general report as further evidence of the need for greater accountability in the VA:

“The Veterans Affairs inspector general report is a damning snapshot of the systemic problems at the VA. The report offers further evidence of why greater accountability is needed at the VA, along with the ability to dismiss mid-level managers who fail at their jobs, as my legislation would do.

“The House has overwhelmingly passed this bill, and we now have several Democratic senators as co-sponsors along with respected veterans organizations urging its immediate passage. This is a bipartisan bill that deserves to be passed and sent to the president with no further delay.

“The status quo that protects mid-level VA managers from being fired – despite the gross misconduct, sexual harassment and abusive conduct described in this IG report – is indefensible. The only thing standing in the way of being able to hold individuals like this accountable for these and other problems is Senate action.”
