Congressman Keith Rothfus (PA-12) released the following statement after the House passed the conference report to the Fiscal Year 2019 Energy and Water, Legislative Branch, and Military Construction and Veterans Affairs Appropriations Act.
"Today's House-passed bipartisan legislation provides critical funding to the VA to ensure our veterans receive the quality care and treatment they need," said Congressman Rothfus. "This includes dedicating funds to implement the VA Mission Act and fortify oversight at the agency. It also provides critical resources to better support infrastructure for our military, invest in our nuclear technology, and strengthen our national security. Additionally, it provides vital funding to support our nation's water resources infrastructure, which is important to American commerce and transportation. We are continuing to deliver on our promises to build a stronger and safer America for all citizens."
