Congressman Sanford D. Bishop, Jr. (GA-02) stood up during House of Representatives floor debate to speak up about the dire need to strengthen the Department of Veterans Affairs as well as return Congress to a responsible budgeting and appropriations process. The bill under debate, H.R. 3236 works to address a Department of Veterans Affairs $3 billion budget shortfall for veterans' health care in Fiscal Year (FY) 2015. While the House-passed FY 2016 MilCon/VA appropriations bill adds $970 million for VA medical care advance appropriations within the FY 2015 bill, the amount still remains $330 million below the VA request - most likely leading to another budget shortfall in FY 2016. close
