Today, Chairman Phil Roe, M.D. (R-Tenn.) released the following statement after the Senate voted to confirm Dr. David Shulkin as Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA):

“I congratulate incoming Secretary Shulkin on his confirmation, and I look forward to meeting with him later this week to discuss VA reform. President Trump has made it clear that wholesale reform of VA is a top priority for his administration, and I’m confident we can work together to ensure our heroes have timely access to the services and benefits they’ve earned. There is much work ahead, but the men and women who have served our country deserve better than the status quo. As chairman of the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, I am committed to bringing accountability and reform to the department, and I know incoming Secretary Shulkin is as well.”
