March 13, 2019 Press Release
"The fiscal year 2020 budget request is $207 million, a $15 million increase over the fiscal year 2019 enacted level. However, given the wide range of new initiatives and significant challenges facing VA and our veterans, I am concerned if this funding is adequate for the effective oversight to successfully combat waste, fraud, and abuse within the Department and ensure that taxpayer’s dollars are being well spent."

March 12, 2019 Press Release
"The Related Agencies title is the smallest section of the bill but has a great impact on our country’s history and our Veterans. Frankly, I am disappointed and concerned to see that once again each of your Agencies is flat funded in the President’s Budget."
