Paralyzed Veterans of America Applauds House Passage of VA MISSION Act

Created on Friday, 18 May 2018 15:25:02

WASHINGTON, DC — Paralyzed Veterans of America (PVA) issued the following statement from its Executive Director, Carl Blake, in response to the House passage of the VA MISSION Act:

"On behalf of Paralyzed Veterans of America members—veterans with spinal cord injury or disease—their families, and caregivers, we applaud the House of Representatives for its passage today of the VA MISSION Act. This critical legislation will ensure that meaningful reform is effected for the delivery of veterans’ health care, particularly in the community.

We are particularly pleased with the inclusion of the expansion of the Department of Veterans Affairs’ Comprehensive Family Caregiver Program to veterans injured prior to September 11, 2001. This issue has been the number one priority for our members and their families since the creation of the original program. The correction in the inequity of the existing program is long overdue."
