DAV Applauds Speaker Pelosi For Pledging Her Support

WASHINGTON, D.C., June 17, 2009 – The Disabled American Veterans (DAV) applauds House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s announcement of her support for advanced appropriations for the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) medical care. Advance appropriations for VA medical care would authorize Congress to approve medical care appropriations for the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) one year in advance of the start of each fiscal year, effectively ending the funding delays that have plagued the VA when Congress has failed to pass an appropriations bill on time. This morning, Speaker Pelosi hosted a roundtable discussion with veterans service organizations  (VSOs) to discuss a number of issues of great importance to veterans including VA health care funding and advance appropriations. Joseph A. Violante, DAV’s National Legislative Director, led discussion about the need for advance appropriations to ensure our veterans receive the care they deserve.
