MEDIA ADVISORY: Rubio, Miller, Sinema, Veterans Groups To Hold Press Conference On VA Accountability Act

Apr 30, 2015 | Press Releases

Washington, D.C.– This afternoon, U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), House Veterans Affairs Committee Chairman Jeff Miller (R-FL), Rep. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) and representatives from leading veterans groups will hold a press conference to highlight the need for the bipartisan “VA Accountability Act of 2015,” which would give the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) secretary additional authorities to remove or demote any VA employee based on performance or misconduct.

This legislation would expand on the “Increasing VA Accountability to Veterans Act of 2015” Rubio co-sponsored in January by giving the VA secretary the authority to terminate any employees for performance-related issues, not just managers. It mirrors legislation filed in the U.S. House of Representatives by Miller and co-sponsored by Sinema.

The following event is open to the press:
