Joint VA Hearing on Legislative Presentation of the Disabled American Veterans (DAV)

Feb 29 2012

Members of the Senate and House Veterans’ Affairs Committees heard testimony from the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) on its 2012 legislative priorities. The existing disability claims backlog, smooth implementation of electronic health records, continued access to VA services and the threat of possible budget sequestration were among their top concerns.

Senator Boozman met with members of the Arkansas DAV and other veterans organizations before the joint hearing. The Arkansas Democrat Gazette talked with some of the Arkansas members who attended the hearing and met with lawmakers in this story published today. (Subscription required)
