– U.S. Rep. Ed Perlmutter (CO-07) issued the following statement on the proposal released today by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to complete the VA hospital in Aurora:

“Today, the VA submitted to Congress another proposal with options to complete the Denver replacement medical facility. The VA has stated this newest proposal is in response to Congressional demands and from what I’ve read it is a serious proposal.  That said, the VA can no longer negotiate with itself and there is very little time left to get this done.  While I continue to digest this information, I call on Speaker Boehner and Secretary McDonald to immediately get in a room and negotiate a deal to do what’s best for the Veterans of the Rocky Mountain region.”
