Washington, D.C. - Today, Congressman Lamborn issued the following statement after the passage of nine bills that will benefit America's veterans:

"I was pleased to vote for these important bills and will continue to urge my fellow Members of Congress to enhance and refine the services we provide our brave veterans. These bills will improve veterans' lives by protecting GI Bill benefits from predatory institutions, improving healthcare and medical services, and making the VA benefit process more transparent. This legislation will also improve the due process rights of veterans when recovering overpayments made by the VA, and allow veterans who are in the appellate process the option to appear by voice and video, reducing travel burdens. I will continue working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to ensure our veterans have all the benefits they have earned in service to their grateful nation."
