Twelve senators reject VA’s plans to reshape health care real estate under AIR Commission

A dozen senators reject the Veterans Affairs Department’s plans to reshape its health care real-estate. The senators say they won’t proceed with the President’s nominees to serve on the Asset and Infrastructure Review Commission. The commission, part of the 2018 MISSION Act, is supposed to review the VA’s recommendations on how it expects to right-size its real-estate portfolio of medical facilities across the country. But VA officials say their plan to close old facilities and build new ones won’t stop here. For an update, Federal News Network’s Jory Heckman joins the Federal Drive with more.
