SIDNEY HERALD VFW presents legislative priorities to Congress US. Sen. Jon Tester, D-Mont., and Veter~ ans of Foreign Wars Commander-in-Chief Vincent “B.J.” Lawrence today were in lockstep that the VA must consult organizations like the VFW when they are implementing reforms that will impact millions of veterans. Ahead of the hearing, Tester also met with Montana VFW mem- bers Tom Johnson, Tim Peters, Joe Fletcher; Art and Marilyn Widhalm, Mel Kieninger, and Tom Pouliot. Lawrence, as I have said before, we’re here because Congress should take its cues from you,” said Tester, Ranking Member of the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee. “You know better than anyone how the VA is performing across the country, and what improvements should be made on behalf of veterans and their families. Listening to veterans shouldn’t simply be a courtesy from VA. It should be mandatory.” “The VFW has provid- ed substantive feedback and helped develop how America cares for her veterans since even before the Veterans Ad- ministration was created in 1930,” said Lawrence. “VA executive leader- ship should be embar- rassed that they have discounted VA’s collab- orative relationship with the VFW and chosen to make arbitrary deci- sions without consulting with those who most intimately understand VA’s mission and the needs of the veterans community.” Tester urged the VA to rely on the VFW and other VSOs in its efforts to reduce the rate of veteran suicide, honor veterans exposed to Agent Orange and burn pits, improve VA care for women veterans, and ensure veterans have ac- cess to timely and qual- ity health care across the nation. ‘Tester also asked if the VA had consulted the VFW before its recent announcement on community care access standards. “We can outsource the service, but we can’t out- source the responsibility. Would the VFW sup- port expansion into the community if it meant reductions in quality or timeliness?” Tester asked. “There should never be a reduction in quality or timeliness when it comes to serving our nation’s veterans,” Lawrence replied. “Were you consulted on the development of the VA’s proposed wait time and drive time standards?” Tester con- tinued. Lawrence replied, “No sir, we weren’t.” “If you had been consulted, would you have had input?” Tester asked. “We would have had a whole lot of input,” Lawrence replied.
