WASHINGTON, D.C. – During today’s policy meeting with President Donald Trump, U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) – chairman of the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Military Construction, Veterans Affairs and Related Agencies and member of the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee – encouraged President Trump to continue prioritizing our nation’s veterans. After the meeting, Sen. Moran released the following statement:

“We discussed a number of important issues, including our nation’s veterans and the Veterans Choice program in today’s policy meeting with the President. I encouraged President Trump to continue to prioritize healthcare reform at the VA and to work with the Veterans’ Affairs Committee on proposed legislation. The President conveyed his support, and I look forward to continuing to work with the Administration and my Senate colleagues to put forward commonsense and simple solutions to provide our nation’s heroes with the quality care they have earned.”

Following President Trump’s inauguration, Sen. Moran also sent a letter to the President to seek his support and work with the Senate to improve the VA. To view the letter, click here.
