Lamborn Praises Executive Order on VA Accountability

April 28, 2017
Press Release

Congressman Lamborn has released the following statement regarding the President's Executive Order issued yesterday:

"I applaud the President for his commitment to accountability and whistleblower protection at the Veterans Administration. However, for this new office to fully accomplish its mission, Congress must act. I have often said that getting accountability legislation done must be at the top of Congress's to-do list. That's why one of the very first things I did this Congress was introduce H.R. 611, legislation to hold bad actors in the VA accountable.

Working with the Administration, we can begin to reform the culture of the VA and restructure the agency to better meet veterans' needs. Going forward, the Caring for Our Heroes in the 21st Century Act will accomplish desperately needed broader reform and expand the choices available to our veterans."
