Rep. Brad Ashford: What’s wrong with a community helping VA?

Rep. Brad Ashford (D-Neb.)

In Omaha, Nebraska, private donors are ready and waiting to donate up to $80 million to help build a new veterans clinic that would serve as a pilot for community-based public-private partnerships with the Veterans Affairs Department. Trouble is, that’s illegal. Under current law, VA can’t accept private donations for construction projects. Rep. Brad Ashford (D-Neb.) ,the co-sponsor of legislation that would change that, talks with Jared Serbu on Federal Drive with Tom Temin about the partnership community leaders are envisioning in Omaha.
