Accountability at the VA

Senators Marco Rubio, Johnny Isakson, and Jon Tester have unveiled their proposed legislation entitled the “Department of Veterans Affairs Accountability and Whistleblower Protection Act.”  If passed, the VA will be better able to protect whistleblowers and have the power to demote or remove incompetent and underperforming employees.  The legislation would also create the Office of Accountability and Whistleblower Protection in the VA.

The bill will also reduce the time it takes to terminate or suspend VA employees who perform poorly or engage in misconduct.

As Senator Bill Nelson, a co-sponsor of the bill, stated: “The brave men and women who have served our country deserve nothing but the best, and this bill is another small step in ensuring that they receive the care they deserve.”
