DAV Launches Advertisement to Promote the Veterans Health Care Budget Reform and Transparency Act

A new DAV advertisement can be found in Tuesday's edition of The Hill and Roll Call. The ad calls on Congress to support and pass the Veterans Health Care Budget Reform and Transparency Act (S. 423 and H.R. 1016), which would provide sufficient, timely and predictable funding for veterans health care and an unprecedented level of transparency and accountability to the budget process. The legislation was introduced last week by Veterans' Affairs Committee Chairmen Sen. Daniel Akaka (D-Hawaii) and Rep. Bob Filner (D-Calif.), with more than two dozen original cosponsors from both sides of the aisle.
