Congressman Seth Moulton’s Veteran Bills Gain Steam, First Republican Signs On

WASHINGTON, DC — Congressman Seth Moulton’s (D-MA) first package of bills is gaining steam after he secured the endorsement of a Republican member of the Committee on Veterans’ Affairs [last week] . A U.S. Army veteran who still serves in the Army Reserves, Representative Lee Zeldin (R-NY) is supporting Moulton’s VA Education Training and Sustainability Act, a set of four bills that would improve the talent pipeline at Veterans Affairs (VA) medical facilities by recruiting new talent and investing in existing employees.

“Veterans deserve the best healthcare available, but instead they face backlogs and inconsistent care,” said Moulton. “It is essential that we make a bipartisan effort to address the systemic problems that prevent veterans from receiving top medical services. Congressman Zeldin is a champion for veterans, and I look forward to working with him to get these bills on the President’s desk.”

Congressman Zeldin said, “I’m proud to co-lead The VA Education Training and Sustainability Act with Congressman Moulton. This package of four bills will provide necessary resources to help attract, train and retain the best employees at VA facilities across the country. After selflessly serving our country, our veterans deserve access to the highest quality of care. These four bills are essential to successfully achieving that goal. I would like to thank Congressman Moulton for his strong leadership on this issue and for his service to our country in the United States military.”

Moulton and Zeldin both served in Iraq and have made veterans’ care a top priority. The bipartisan package of legislation aims to improve care by offering incentives in order to attract and retain the best talent at the VA.
