VFW Supports New VA Accountability, Whistleblower Protection Act

National VFW - 5/18/2017

The VFW yesterday saluted Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and the leadership of the House and Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committees for reaching a bipartisan deal to better protect whistleblowers and hold employees accountable for their conduct or performance. The need for action follows a federal appellate court decision this week that rendered unconstitutional the process used to fire the former director of the Phoenix VA Health Care System. VFW National Commander Brian Duffy said VA Secretary David Shulkin needs to have the authority to manage his people in a manner expected of all senior executives, public or private. "The VFW wants the secretary to weed out the nonperformers and those whose personal conduct brings doubt and dishonor upon thousands of dedicated employees, because maintaining the status quo doesn’t work for those who have borne the battle,” he said. Help the VFW get the bill passed by urging your respective members of Congress to support and quickly pass S. 1094, the Department of Veterans Affairs Accountability and Whistleblower Protection Act of 2017.
