Tentative Deal Reached On VA Reform

Tentative Deal Reached On VA Reform

The chairmen of the House and Senate Veterans Affairs committees have reached a tentative agreement on a plan to improve veterans' health care.

Florida Rep. Jeff Miller and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders scheduled a news conference Monday to talk about negotiations on a compromise bill to reform the Veterans Affairs Department.

A spokesman for Sanders confirmed the agreement Sunday.

The pair said in a joint statement Sunday that they had "made significant progress" toward agreement on legislation "to make VA more accountable and to help the department recruit more doctors, nurses and other health care professionals."

Sanders proposed a bill last week that would cost about $25 billion over three years. Miller's proposal would approve $10 billion in emergency spending.
