Washington, D.C. – Today, the House of Representatives voted to pass S. 1266, the Enhancing Veteran Care Act, introduced by Senator James Inhofe (OK), on May 25, 2017. The legislation would authorize the VA to contract with a nonprofit organization that accredits U.S. health care organizations/programs to investigate and assess/report deficiencies at VA medical centers (VAMCs).

"This legislation gives the VA more flexibility to work with third parties to study, observe, and report on ways to robustly improve care for our men and women," said Congressman Scott Taylor.
