WASHINGTON — The Department of Veterans Affairs would get another multibillion-dollar increase in 2019 under President Donald Trump’s new budget proposal, which includes cuts to domestic agencies and social programs while boosting spending for defense, homeland security and the VA.

The proposal, released Monday, asks for $198.6 billion for the VA for fiscal 2019 – significantly more than the $186 billion budget that Congress is working to approve for the current fiscal year. It places emphasis on mental health care, information technology, access to private-sector medical care and efforts to stop waste, fraud and abuse. https://www.stripes.com/va-budget-would-climb-to-nearly-200-billion-under-trump-proposal-1.511368
