SENATOR BERNIE SANDERS,
Member, Senate Committee on Veterans Affairs, U.S. Senate

 As the former Chairman and a current member of the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee, one of Sen. Sanders’ highest priorities in Congress has been ensuring that our veterans receive the care and benefits they have earned.

Amid reports of unacceptable wait times at many VA medical facilities last year, Sen. Sanders spearheaded a bipartisan effort to pass the most comprehensive veterans’ legislation in decades that increases accountability within the VA and ensures that all veterans have access to timely health care. The law written by Sanders strengthens the VA health care system by authorizing 27 new medical facilities and by providing $5 billion to hire more doctors and nurses to care for the surging number of veterans returning from wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Sen. Sanders will be joining the 2017 VA Healthcare program and delivering an address during our Gala Dinner at the end of Main Summit Day One. For more information, download the agenda by entering your details to the right hand side of this page.
