CR Liberty Score Update

This piece of much-needed reform reduces the power of entrenched Veterans Affairs bureaucrats by easing the process for senior officials to fire failing employees. Additionally, the bill creates the Office of Accountability and Whistleblower Protection to aid whistleblowers and ensure that abuses within the V.A. are reported and the administration is held accountable.

The House of Representatives approved the bill 368-55 on July 13, 2017.
