- VA REFORM TO BE AT THE TOP OF CLINTON'S PRIORITIES IF ELECTED - July 26, 2016

By Kellie Lunney, Government Executive
Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton on Monday said that revamping the Veterans Affairs Department will be “one of my highest priorities” if she is elected in November.
Clinton said she was “outraged” by scandals at the VA, during remarks at the annual convention of the Veterans of Foreign Wars in Charlotte, N.C., but did not specifically mention holding department employees accountable or changing the disciplinary process for federal workers in the speech. She did, however, reiterate her pledge not to privatize the VA.
