INDIANA (WLFI) — Republican Senator Todd Young is spearheading the Department of Veterans Affairs Oversight Enhancement Act of 2018. The Act aims to provide more oversight from Congress to ensure each veteran receives proper benefits.
It also says the Veteran's Affairs Secretary must report to Congress on a regular basis.
Young explains the push to get veterans the best health care possible.
"Well, the Veterans Administration health care System is really failing, getting a failing grade," said Young. "In 2015 they were on the General Accountability Offices, this is the federal government's auditor, their list of high risk, problems."
Young worked with Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota on the Act. She said their efforts will ensure the V-A is using their funds appropriately.
