WASHINGTON — House lawmakers on Tuesday advanced major reforms for the Department of Veterans Affairs that include an extensive overhaul of the agency’s private-sector care programs – a deal delayed by intense negotiations for more than a year.

The House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs voted 20-2 to send the legislation to the full House. The bill, titled the VA Mission Act, would alter eligibility criteria for veterans to access private-sector health care, extend benefits for veteran caregivers and initiate a review of VA infrastructure, among other changes. The bill would cost $51 billion over a five-year period, according to preliminary estimates from the Congressional Budget Office. https://www.stripes.com/news/house-committee-approves-extensive-va-reform-deal-1.525906
