Perlmutter Statement on VA Medical Center
U.S. Rep. Ed Perlmutter released the following statement on the VA Medical Center in Aurora:
“I’m pleased the House finally acted to avoid a shutdown on this project. But I’m not pleased we will continue to kick the can down the road. We now have a window of opportunity to finish this project, and I want this window to succeed. I urge House Republican leadership to immediately resume negotiations with the VA to find agreement on a permanent solution. Veterans are demanding Congress act and do the right thing by finishing this project."
