Background: For far too long, underperforming employees have been allowed to continue working at VA, simply because the processes for removal are so protracted. Secretary of Veterans Affairs David J. Shulkin must expeditiously remove or demote VA employees who endanger the well-being of veterans. Today, the House of Representatives is set to vote on H.R. 1259, the VA Accountability First Act of 2017, which would grant Secretary Shulkin the authority to swiftly terminate employees who do not deserve to work at VA.
Take Action: Contact your Representatives and tell them to pass H.R. 1259, the VA Accountability First Act of 2017. Let them know this bill is vital to ensure VA is a strong and accountable organization.
