Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tim Walberg (MI-07) voted today for H.R. 2029, the FY2016 Military Construction and Veterans Affairs Appropriations Bill, to ensure our military has the infrastructure they need, boost funding for veterans programs, and to make the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) more accountable. H.R. 2029 also includes a Walberg-sponsored amendment to boost veterans' job training and services to help them transition into the civilian sector.

"This bill reflects our unwavering commitment to providing America's troops and veterans with the resources they need while on active duty and when they return to our communities. Back at home, we must continue to aggressively seek reforms to the Department of Veterans Affairs so our veterans receive the high quality care they have honorably earned," said Walberg. "We can't afford to leave our veterans behind, and my amendment to help veterans better transition from military service to the workforce is another important way we can meet our obligations to our nation's brave service members."
